Abstract

We report 3 cases of Burkholderia pseudomallei liver abscesses that have a characteristic "honeycomb" appearance on computed tomography scans. Such a finding should prompt physicians to include B. pseudomallei infection in the differential diagnoses of liver abscesses and consider initiation of empirical therapy for melioidosis in high-risk patients from areas of endemicity.
