Melioidosis in traveler from Africa to Spain.Emerg Infect Dis. 2013 Oct; 19(10):1656-9.EI
The worldwide epidemiology of melioidosis is changing. We describe a case of acute melioidosis in Spain in a patient who had traveled to Africa. A novel sequence type of Burkholderia pseudomallei was identified in this patient. Clinicians should be aware of the possibility of melioidosis in travelers returning from melioidosis-nonendemic regions.
