Abstract

We report two atypical presentations of melioidosis as mediastinal lymphadenitis and prostatic abscess with Burkholderia pseudomallei, the emerging category 2 organism which led to diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma and thereby, delay in appropriate management. Any similar presentation should always be supported by microbiological opinion without any delay, which can help in instituting proper antibiotics with successful outcome.
