Abstract This study examined whether coinfection with HIV and Burkholderia pseudomallei leads to altered disease severity or outcome associated with melioidosis. Coinfection was detected in only 8 of 524 (1.5%) adults with melioidosis in northeast Thailand. Clinical presentation and acute outcome were similar in HIV-positive and HIV-negative patients.
