The typing of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is important from a clinical and epidemiological perspective. The polymerase chain reaction-restriction enzyme analysis (PRA) method and DNA sequence analysis method were utilized to target a gene region that codes the 65-kDa heat-shock protein for typing 150 suspected NTM samples isolated from the respiratory tract. Mycobacterium abscessus, Mycobacterium xenopi, Mycobacterium fortuitum, and Mycobacterium peregrinum were most frequently found by both methods. Six isolates that could not be defined by the PRA method were defined as Nocardia cyriacigeorgica, Nocardia abscessus, and Mycobacterium intracellulare by DNA sequence analysis. Discordance between the results of the two methods was observed for only one isolate. The isolate that was defined as Mycobacterium gordonae type 6 by the PRA method was defined as Mycobacterium senegalense by sequence analysis. The PRA method is simple and gives rapid results. Compared with DNA sequence analysis, it gives consistent and reliable results up to a ratio of 90%. DNA sequence analysis is the gold standard method in which all strains can be defined. However, given our laboratory conditions, its disadvantage is that it takes longer to reach a diagnosis than through the PRA method.
