Genotypes of Pneumocystis jiroveci Isolates Obtained in Harare, Zimbabwe, and London, United Kingdom

Academic Article


  • Isolates of Pneumocystis jiroveci from sulfa-exposed and nonexposed patients from London, United Kingdom, and Harare, Zimbabwe, were genotyped. At the dihydropteroate synthase (DHPS) locus, there was evidence of selection pressure from sulfa drug exposure, and reversal of DHPS genotype ratios occurred when selection pressure was absent or was removed.
