Abstract Frequency of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis in Pakistan increased from 1.5\% in 2006 to 4.5\% in 2009 (p<0.01). To understand the epidemiology, we genotyped selected strains by using spoligotyping, mycobacterial interspersed repetitive units-variable number of tandem repeats, and IS6110 restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis.
