A collection of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium human strains isolated in Northern Sardinia (Italy) was examined for the insertion sequence IS200, phage type, antibiotic profile, ribotyping polymorphisms and plasmid profile. All clinical isolates studied contained from 4 to 10 copies of the IS200 element. IS200 permitted to discriminate Typhimurium strains and to identify five IS200 types, some of them circulating in Sardinia at least since 1900. Strains belonging to phage DT104 predominated and correlated with a specific IS200 pattern.
