We studied a total of 245 M. tuberculosis strains collected during a 1-year period, from January to December 2002, from the same number of TB patients hospitalized in Tuscany, Italy. Spoligotype analysis showed seven isolates with the typical Beijing/W pattern of probe hybridization only to spacer sequences 35–43. This is the first report of isolation of M. tuberculosis strains of Beijing genotype in Italy.
