Complete genome sequence of Streptococcus mitis strain SVGS_061 isolated from a neutropenic patient with viridans group streptococcal shock syndrome.

Streptococcus mitisfrequently causes invasive infections in neutropenic cancer patients, with a subset of patients developing viridans group streptococcal (VGS) shock syndrome. We report here the first complete genome sequence ofS. mitisstrain SVGS_061, which caused VGS shock syndrome, to help elucidate the pathogenesis of severe VGS infection.
