Trop Doct. 2010 Oct; 40(4):240-1.TD

Abstract

We report a case of melioidosis with splenic abscesses caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei in an urban-dwelling, 54-year-old Taiwanese man. The patient presented with prolonged fever and abdominal pain. A splenectomy was performed, followed by successful treatment with ceftazidime and amoxicillin-clavulanate. The patient recovered fully.
