Abstract

Melioidosis, an important diagnosis in the severely ill traveler Melioidosis is a common tropical infection in Southeast Asia and is caused by the highly pathogenic soil bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei. Diagnosis and treatment is often challenging due to variations in clinical presentation, limited antibiotic susceptibility and high risk of recurring infection. In this report, three cases with different clinical presentations are described.
