Correction

Following the publication of our article [1] an error in the case presentation section was noted. In the description of the antibiotic susceptibility of SA1 strain, we incorrectly stated the value of vancomycin MIC for SA1.

The vancomycin MIC determined by the broth microdilution method was 1 μg/mL.

Should read:

The vancomycin MIC determined by the broth microdilution method was 0.5 μg/mL.
