We investigated whether MLVA typing could identify different subtypes of Clostridium difficile ribotype 027 within the same faeces specimen. Five of 39 specimens yielded at least one isolate with an MLVA profile different (>5 STRD) from other isolates in the same specimen thereby potentially obscuring epidemiological links between CDI cases.
