We prov ided a molecular epidemiology research of 85 A. baumannii isolates of southern Iran using amplified restricti on fragment polymorphism (AFLP) DNA fingerprinting method . Using a cut-off of 90% similarity, AFLP revealed 42 different AFLP types. This study approved evidence for prominent genotypic variations among MDR-AB populat ion in southern Iran.
