Abstract [en]

Catabacter hongkongensis was isolated and cultured from human blood for the first time in Scandinavia. The patient, an 83 year old man from Dalarna, Sweden, recovered without antibiotic treatment while a high mortality rate associated with Catabacter hongkongensis infections was reported from China, Canada, and France. The genome of the strain ABBA15k was sequenced, assembled, and analyzed. In contrast to the type strain of the species HKU16T no antibiotic resistance was observed in Scandinavian strain ABBA15k. The strain was deposited as CCUG 68271 and the draft genome sequence is available from DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank under the accession number LLYX00000000.
