Author information

Paediatric Institute, Kuala Lumpur Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


We report a 17-year-old Malay boy with cystic fibrosis who over a 14-month period experienced worsening respiratory symptoms and deteriorating lung function. Burkholderia pseudomallei was eventually isolated from his sputum. He improved clinically following treatment for meliodosis and his lung function returned to normal.
