Özet

Background: Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans is a major pathogen in aggressive periodontitis. Our objectives were to determine the periodontal status and occurrence of A. actinomycetemcomitans in family members of subjects with A. actinomycetemcomitans-positive aggressive periodontitis (AgP) and to evaluate the probability of its intrafamilial transmission.
