PFGE patterns for 22 Neisseria meningitidis serogroup W strains (6 from reported patients, 16 from close contacts) isolated during 2011–2012 and 3 isolated during 2006–2008, China. All isolates were sequence type 11 (determined by multilocus sequence typing) and PorA type P1.5,2. PFGE, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis.
