Abstract

Staphylococcus aureus strains without catalase activity are rare, challenging to identify with conventional biochemical methods, and, despite a supposed decreased pathogenicity, can still cause disease. The first whole-genome sequence of a catalase-negative S. aureus isolate causing severe recurrent invasive infection with two novel missense mutations in the katA gene is reported here.
