Burkholderia pseudomallei is a saprophytic Gram-negative bacterium responsible for the tropical infectious disease melioidosis. Melioidosis is endemic to northern Australia and Southeast Asia. In this study, 234 isolates of B. pseudomallei obtained from the first positive clinical specimen from 234 consecutive patients diagnosed with melioidosis between October 2009 and September 2012 were reviewed. All isolates were susceptible to meropenem and ceftazidime. In total, 226 isolates (96.6%) were… CONTINUE READING
