The clinical profile and predictors of mortality in patients with melioidosis in South India.
Trop Doct. 2010 Jan; 40(1):36-8.TD

Abstract

Melioidosis is an underdiagnosed and underreported disease in India with protean clinical manifestations. Mortality in this study population was 17%. The predominant risk factor for melioidosis was diabetes mellitus. Multifocal disease was present in 66% and pulmonary involvement in 61% of patients. In a country like India where the conditions are conducive for endemic melioidosis and due to the clinical similarity of melioidosis to diseases like tuberculosis, it is essential for clinicians to have a high degree of suspicion and pursue suitable diagnostic strategies for melioidosis in the appropriate clinical setting.
