    Meliodosis is an infectious disease encountered mainly in tropics. It is not an uncommon problem in Malaysia especially in areas with agricultural activities. Although it can occur in all age groups, there have been few reported cases in children. Men are more commonly affected than women due to outdoor activities. Neonatal cases have been reported in Hawaii and Thailand. These infants presented with neonatal sepsis or meningitis. The mode of transmission to these infants has not been elucidated. This is the report of such a case first reported in Hospital Tengku Ampun Afzan, Kuantan.

    Burkholderia pseudomallei is the etiological agent of melioidosis, which has been studied by transcriptome and secretome analyses. However, little is known about the methylome of this pathogen. Here, we present the complete genome and methylome of melioidosis-causing B. pseudomallei strain 982.

    This paper records 2 fatal cases of melioidosis in wallabies from Australia maintained in the Botanical Gardens, Penang, for about 3 months. The nature of lesions described is different from that described by various workers.

    This report is of a man who suffered from chronic melioidosis contracted in Malaysia. In the course of the disease he had a lobe of a lung resected, developed empyema and, while this was still draining, developed infection in an ankle. Both the empyema thoracis and the ankle infection were due to Pseudomonas pseudomallel. He now appears to be cured, probably by massive doses of tetracycline.

    Burkholderia pseudomallei infections are prevalent in Southeast Asia and northern Australia and often misdiagnosed. Diagnostics are often neither sensitive nor rapid, contributing up to 50% mortality rate. In this 2018 pilot study, we enrolled 100 patients aged 6 months-79 years from Kapit Hospital in Sarawak, Malaysia, with symptoms of B. pseudomallei infection. We used three different methods for the detection of B. pseudomallei: a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay, a rapid lateral flow immunoassay, and the standard-of-care bacterial culture-the gold standard. Among the 100 participants, 24 (24%) were positive for B. pseudomallei by one or more of the detection methods. Comparing the two individual diagnostic methods against the gold standard-bacterial culture-of any positive test, there was low sensitivity for each test (25-44%) but high specificity (93-98%). It seems clear that more sensitive diagnostics or a sensitive screening diagnostic followed by specific confirmatory diagnostic is needed for this disease.

    Over the last two decades, many epidemiological studies were performed to describe risks and clinical presentations of melioidosis in endemic countries.

    Melioidosis is reported to cause a high fatality rate in children, even in the absence of risk factors for disease. The aim of this study was to identify characteristics of fatal pediatric melioidosis infection. We performed a retrospective analysis of children aged < 15 years with culture-confirmed melioidosis admitted to Bintulu Hospital in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo, from January 2011 to December 2020. Forty-one children had culture-confirmed melioidosis. Nine (22%) had a fatal outcome; 8 (89%) had no predisposing risk factors. Bacteremia, septic shock, and acute respiratory distress syndrome were present in all fatalities. Demographic characteristics, presenting manifestation, and disseminated infection were not significantly associated with mortality, whereas the presence of splenomegaly, cytopenia, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and hepatobiliary dysfunction, all of which are features of hyperferritinemic sepsis-induced multiple-organ dysfunction syndrome, were associated with mortality. Hyperferritinemic sepsis-induced multiple-organ dysfunction syndrome may be a key component in the pathogenesis of fatal pediatric melioidosis.

    Infectious diseases account for a third of all the deaths in the developing world. Achievements in understanding the basic microbiology, pathogenesis, host defenses and expanded epidemiology of infectious diseases have resulted in better management and reduced mortality. However, an emerging infectious disease, melioidosis, is becoming endemic in the tropical regions of the world and is spreading to non-endemic areas. This article highlights the current understanding of melioidosis including advances in diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Better understanding of melioidosis is essential, as it is life-threatening and if untreated, patients can succumb to it. Our sources include a literature review, information from international consensus meetings on melioidosis and ongoing discussions within the medical and scientific community.
