Mycobacterium bovis caused 3% of human tuberculosis cases in southwest Ireland during 1998-2006. Of 11 M. bovis strains genotyped, 9 belonged to common animal spoligotypes. Seven strains were from sputum and potential sources of human-centered disease transmission. Tenlocus variable-number tandem repeat typing gave unique strain profiles and would detect disease outbreaks.
