Abstract

Genetic assessment by spoligotyping of 565 Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex strains collected from the Western Region of Cameroon between 2004 and 2005 has confirmed the establishment of the "Cameroon family" as the leading cause of tuberculosis in 45.9% of cases and evidenced the rapid quasi extinction of Mycobacterium africanum, isolated in 3.3% of tuberculosis cases.
