Figure 2

Beijing genotype tuberculosis (TB) in Karonga District, Malawi, over time. The solid lines show the number of persons with each Beijing genotype restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) pattern, and the dotted line shows the proportion of culture-positive TB cases that are due to the Beijing genotype. Because strains KPS97 (14 patients) and KPS385 (2 patients) differed by only 1 band on RFLP, they are shown together.
