Abstract

Melioidosis is an emerging infectious disease in the tropics caused by a soil saprophyte, Burkholderia pseudomallei. The disease is characterized by its protean clinical manifestations and high case fatality rates. Increase in the number of reported cases from various parts of India over the past one decade, underscore the possibility of endemicity and under-diagnosis of the disease in the sub-continent.
