Disseminated septicaemic melioidosis: an unusual presentation of masticator space infection.
J Laryngol Otol. 2003 May; 117(5):417-8.JL

Abstract

Melioidosis is an infectious disease caused by a saprophytic bacterium, Burkholderia pseudomallei. It is endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. The spectrum of melioidosis in humans varies from sub-clinical to overwhelming protean manifestations resembling other acute and chronic bacterial infections. Disseminated septicaemia melioidosis presenting as a masticator space infection is reported here. This is germane to those treating diabetic patients with deep neck infections living in, or having visited, areas endemic for B. pseudomallei.
