The author gives data on the vaginal flora of women aged 20--64 in the commune of Gevgelia obtained in the course of an early mass detection of the carcinoma of the uterine cervix in this area. The action covered 70.5% of women from urban areas and 85.3% of women from rural areas. The microbiological analysis of vaginal flora was made in two ways: first, by taking smears and by vital staining and classifying them after Jirovec, Peter, and Malik; another preparation was sent to the cytologist and, after fixing and staining, was interpreted microbiologically. The results of both methods are shown in tabular form, according to women's age and residence. They do not differ much between themselves. The purity of vaginal secretion in women from rural areas is higher than that in women from urban areas. The occurrence of Trichomonas vaginalis is twice as frequent in women from rural than from urban areas. There is a significant difference in the existence of Döderlein's bacillus in the postmenopausal period between women from urban and from rural parts of the commune. In women from urban areas over 60 Döderlein's bacillus was present only in 39.28% and in those from rural areas in as many as 63.07% of this group of women.
