Abstract

Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) of 35 isolates of multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae recovered in Poland during 1995-1996 distinguished 10 different sequence types (ST). The majority of the isolates were assigned to two Polish clones of serotypes 6B and 23F, although the international clones, Spain23F-1 and Spain9V-3, were also identified. Similar results were obtained using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), providing a direct comparison of these two typing methods.
