[Chronic skin ulcer in a 24-year-old man after a journey to Southeast Asia].
Internist (Berl). 2017 Aug; 58(8):859-862.I

Abstract

Our report concerns a 24-year-old man with a chronic exsudative skin lesion after a journey to Southeast Asia. The diagnosis of melioidosis was made by the identification of Burkholderia pseudomallei from the ichor. The diagnosis was confirmed by polymerase change reaction. The patient was treated with meropenem i. v. for about 10 days and with trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole for the following 12 weeks. Melioidosis is an endemic disease in Southeast Asia and North Australia which in some cases can run a severe course and can have a high fatality rate. The relevance of melioidosis becomes more important against the background of the increasing global movement of travelers and migration.
