Description: Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis has emerged over the last two years at Carrasco Hospital, located in Rosario city. Nosocomial transmission among 7 AIDS patients admitted into the same ward between June and December/94 was supported by temporal clustering of cases, matching drug susceptibility, and identical IS6110 fingerprints. Among 8 non-HIV chronic cases without evidence of reciprocal contact outside the hospital, two additional clusters of 2 and 4 cases, respectively, were identified. The latter was found to be generated by a strain genetically related to the one that infected AIDS patients. It is hypothesized that an ancestor strain, common to both, might have been brought into the hospital long before the outbreak was first suspected.
