Abstract

From 1997 to 2006, in the province of Quebec, Canada, 15 isolates of from 1 urine and 14 vaginorectal cultures were recovered from the genitourinary tract of pregnant women. All these women originated from the Caribbean or sub-Saharan Africa (=0.00045 compared with a suitable control group). The isolates were compared to eight isolates of identified in Quebec from 1995 to 2006, all from animals, of which five were swine. 16S rRNA gene sequencing was required to differentiate between and animal isolates.
