Abstract

Restriction fragment-length polymorphism of ribosomal DNA and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis were used to study the relationships among nine isolates of Alcaligenes xylosoxidans obtained from seven children in a pediatric hospital. All the children harbored only genotypically unrelated strains, thus excluding a common source of exposure or patient-to-patient strain transfer.
