The aim of this study was to characterize a S. equi subspecies equi strain isolated from an Ethiopian camel by different molecular techniques (Ribotyping and PCR-Ribotyping). We compared the results obtained with those generated from two strains of the Pasteur Collection. The ribotyping showed the highest power of differentiation, distinguishing between the strains analyzed, whereas PCR-Ribotyping was able only to differentiate the camel isolate but not the strains from the Pasteur Collection. The application of this technique will be very useful to establish a clonal relationship among equine and camelids strains and help the prevention and cure of the equine and camel pathology.
