Abstract Arbitrarily primed PCR (AP-PCR) was used to type 64 clinical isolates of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia from 60 patients and the hands of one nurse. Forty-seven different patterns were observed, most patients having isolates with unique genomic fingerprints. A single pattern, however, was obtained from six of eight patients involved in an intensive care nursery outbreak, confirming the suspected nosocomial transmission of this microorganism. This strain was also found in four other patients hospitalized at the same time but in different units. AP-PCR typing results had a good correlation with the 49 patterns obtained when the isolates were typed by contour-clamped homogeneous electric field gel electrophoresis. Although AP-PCR is slightly less discriminatory than contour-clamped homogeneous electric field gel electrophoresis, it offers several advantages and should be considered as a practical option for molecular typing during investigations of outbreaks.
