Usually a saprophyte, Scedosporium apiospermum often colonizes the respiratory tracts of patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). In order to improve our understanding of the molecular epidemiology of the airway colonization, 129 sequential and multiple isolates collected from January 1998 to March 1999 from nine CF patients monitored in three hospitals in France were typed by random amplification of polymorphic DNA with primers GC70, UBC-701, and UBC-703. Among these primers, UBC-703 was the most discriminating, allowing the differentiation of 14 genotypes. Combining the results obtained with t…
