[Melioidosis in a Danish tourist returning from North-eastern Thailand].
Ugeskr Laeger. 2014 Jun 09; 176(12)UL

Abstract

Melioidosis, an infectious disease caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei, is endemic in South East Asia and Northern Australia. It has a wide clinical diversity, spanning from asymptomatic cases to rapid septic shock and death. We present a case of pulmonary melioidosis in a Danish tourist returning from North-eastern Thailand. The patient was treated with intravenous ceftazidime followed by oral therapy with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole and subsequently switched to doxycycline due to abnormal liver function tests and eosinophilia, with no sign of relapse two months after antibiotic cessation.
