Five genetic islands (HiGI) found in Haemophilus influenzae type b strain Eagan were used as hybridization probes on type b, Haemophilus haemolyticus, and nontypeable H. influenzae (NTHi) isolates. HiGI2 and HiGI7 were significantly more prevalent in NTHi isolates from children with otitis media than in those from the throats of healthy children.
