Abstract

SUMMARY We present the first two fulminant cases of pulmonarymelioidosis in febrile neutropenic patientswith acute and varied presentations seen in our institution and their fatal outcome. Ahigh index of suspicion coupledwith microbiological confirmation can facilitate the administration of the appropriate therapy in cases of melioidosis that differ fromother bacterial infections in terms of presentation and the response to antimicrobials.
