    Abstract

    In recent years, numerous IS2404 positive mycobacteria have been identified, compromising the detection of Mycobacterium ulcerans. In this study, variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) analysis was successfully applied on cultures and tissue specimens to differentiate all currently known IS2404 positive mycobacteria from M. ulcerans.
