Tuberculosis Outbreak in an Educational Institution in Norway.

J Clin Microbiol 2017 05 15;55(5):1327-1333. Epub 2017 Feb 15.

Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Oslo, Norway.

Within 1 week in April 2013, three cases of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) were reported among students attending training sessions at an educational institution in Oslo, Norway. By the end of October 2013, a total of nine epidemiologically linked cases had been reported. The outbreak encompassed a total of 24 cases from 2009 to 2014, among which all of the 22 isolates available had identical mycobacterial interspersed repetitive-unit-variable-number tandem-repeat (MIRU-VNTR) profiles (MtbC15-9 code 10287-189) belonging to the Beijing lineage. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of the isolates revealed 20 variable nucleotide positions within the cluster, indicating a clonal outbreak. The most likely index case was identified and diagnosed in Norway in 2009 but was born in Asia. WGS analyses verified that all of the cases were indeed part of a single transmission chain. However, even when combining WGS and intensified contact tracing, we were unable to fully reconstruct the TB transmission events.
