Here, we present the complete genome sequence of a Campylobacter strain isolated in the Netherlands from a patient with gastroenteritis. The strain showed .98% sequence identity to the novel Campylobacter species sequence recently recovered from metagenomic data, isolated from breastfed infants with diarrheal disease, and named “Candidatus Campylobacter infans.”
