Abstract

We report a rare difficult-to-manage case of chronic granulomatous osteomyelitis due to Burkholderia pseudomallei, the category two organism with atypical sensitivity pattern. The patient was a 29-year-old who presented with a history of dull aching pain in the left thigh region for one year. Local examination revealed a diffuse swelling and tenderness. Any similar presentation should therefore always be supported by microbiological opinion to prevent prolonged morbidity, especially in immunocompromised patients.
