Abstract

The present study represents the first application of multilocus sequence typing to retrospectively investigate a suspected outbreak of Candida albicans bloodstream infection cases that occurred in the same hospital ward between July 1987 and October 1991. Results demonstrated that eight bloodstream infections were caused by the same strain, endemic in the ward, over a 4-year period.
