Neurologic Melioidosis: Case Report of a Rare Cause of Acute Flaccid Paralysis



Neurologic Melioidosis: Case Report of a Rare Cause of Acute Flaccid Paralysis



Journal of Pediatrics 170: 319-321



Acute flaccid paralysis is associated with inflammation, infection, or tumors in the spinal cord or peripheral nerves. Melioidosis (Burkholderia pseudomallei infection) can rarely cause this presentation. We describe a case of spinal melioidosis in a 4-year-old boy presenting with flaccid paralysis, and review the literature on this rare disease.
