Abstract

We report herein a patient with pulmonary melioidosis, whose initial chest roentgenogram revealed only a pleural mass. The patient had not been in a zone endemic for melioidosis during the previous 15 months. We stress the importance of including melioidosis in the differential diagnosis of pleural lesions, and of considering this diagnosis in any patient who has been in an endemic zone at any time in the past.
