An increased number of cases of salmonellosis caused by a rare serotype Mikawasima was noted in the years 2012 and 2013 in the Czech Republic. There has also been reported a potential on-going outbreak caused by this serotype in European countries. Macrorestriction analysis together with antimicrobial susceptibility testing and PCR for ESBL and plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance detection were performed to compare our isolates. Twenty-one isolates created two very similar clusters and 5 isolates had different profiles. Twenty-five isolates were fully susceptible to all agents used. One isolate showed 12 resistances and possessed blaTEM, blaSHV, blaOXA, blaCTX-M  and qnrB genes.
