Abstract — Melioidosis is a clinically diverse disease caused by the facultative intracellular gram-negative bacterium, Burkholderia pseudomallei [1,2]. This organism is a widely distributed environmental saprophyte in soil and fresh surface water in endemic regions [3]; the risk of acquiring the infection occurs in these same areas. The treatment and prognosis of melioidosis will be presented here. The epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis of melioidosis are discussed separately.
