B. pseudomallei cause a wide spectrum of conditions, ranging from asymptomatic infection to abscesses, pneumonia, and disseminated disease. It is a significant cause of fatal community - acquired pneumonia and septicemia in endemic areas, with high mortality rates. A 54 Year male patient presented with fever and multiple abscess. Routine tests and special tests were performed. Appropriate antibiotic coverage was given. Here, we present a rare case of melioidosis.
