Burkholderia pseudomallei misidentified by automated system.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2009 Nov; 15(11):1799-801.EI

Abstract

After returning from Thailand, a 35-year-old man from Switzerland was hospitalized with an abscess of the head. Material cultured from the abscess and adjacent bone grew a gram-negative rod, which was misidentified by an automated microbiology system as Burkholderia cepacia. The organism was eventually identified by molecular methods as B. pseudomallei.
