Background: A molecular epidemiological study of TB conducted in North Sardinia (Italy) by Micobacteriology’s laboratory (University of Sassari), demonstrated an interesting case of same-strain transmission among co-workers. Epidemiological information indicating possible links between 5 TB-patients, hospitalized in the Institute of Respiratory Disease (University of Sassari), were also available. The patients come from the same geographic area, and moreover they were co-workers and friends which met each other frequently.
