Abstract Clonal analysis based on ribotyping demonstrated that Providencia alcalifaciens strains isolated mainly from diarrhoeal stools in S (a) over tilde o Paulo, Brazil, were clustered into two main groups. Eleven distinct ribotype patterns were identified with ClaI, EcoRV and MluI restriction endonucleases. II alcalifaciens strains with invasive properties were of two ribotype patterns that differed from those identified among non-invasive strains. The ribotyping results confirmed that P. alcalifaciens strains associated with diarrhoeal disease in S (a) over tilde o Paulo represent distinct groups of strains. Although the invasive strains were isolated from different patients over an extended period they were clustered into two genetically related clones, which seemed to be distributed endemically in the two genetically related population studied.
