Melioidosis, an emerging infectious disease in India is well known for its protean clinical manifestations. Definitive diagnosis can be made by isolation of non-fermentative Gram-negative bacilli from clinical specimens and identification of the isolate at the species level. We report a case of disseminated melioidosis with lymphadenitis and prostatic abscess. Burkholderia pseudomallei was isolated from bone marrow, pus aspirate, blood and urine, and the patient responded well to the treatment.
