Abstract

Five Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates were obtained from three body sites from a Dutch patient. The isolates displayed a single genotype by 24-locus MIRU-VNTR typing (except for a single locus not amplified from one isolate) but were differentiated by small variations in IS6110 fingerprints, spoligotypes, 6 hypervariable MIRU-VNTR loci, and/or DiversiLab profiles, revealing patterns of microevolution in a clonal infection.
