    Prijesh Janardanan*, PC Easaw and Abdul Rahiman

    Melioidosis is an infection caused by a gram negative bacterium .We report a case of FUO which upon investigation revealed muscle abscess and subsequent pus culture revealed melioidosis. This case is reported since melioidosis can often mimic other diseases and in rare instances present with psoas abscess. 


    * Melioidosis is an infrequent cause of FUO in the Indian subcontinent

    * Prolonged back pain in a case of melioidosis warrants imaging if deemed necessary
