Melioidosis caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei in drinking water, Thailand, 2012.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2014 Feb; 20(2):265-8.EI

Abstract

We identified 10 patients in Thailand with culture-confirmed melioidosis who had Burkholderia pseudomallei isolated from their drinking water. The multilocus sequence type of B. pseudomallei from clinical specimens and water samples were identical for 2 patients. This finding suggests that drinking water is a preventable source of B. pseudomallei infection.
