Melioidosis: a case of sheep to human transmission

Melioidosis: a case of sheep to human transmission

Jurnal Veterinar Malaysia 10(2): 77-79

A case of melioidosis was diagnosed in a 10-year-old Malay boy following the isolation of Burkholderia pseudomallei in his blood, cerebrospinal fluid and head abscesses. B. pseudomallei was also isolated from the soil and water samples taken from the sheep holding-area near the patient's house. An emaciated, dyspnoeic sheep from the same holding-area was killed and PM examination revealed multiple abscesses in the lungs and spleen.
