A multiplex PCR has been standardized and evaluated for the identification of both typical and atypical enteroaggregative Escherichia coil (EAEC). The assay detecting aaiA, aaiG, aggR and aatA presented 94.8% of sensitivity, 94.3% of specificity and was able to efficiently detect both groups of EAEC among E. coli isolated from stool cultures.
