Melioidosis is caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei, which is normally present in soil, endemic in the tropical and subtropical regions. It has a varied clinical presentation from presenting with acute symptoms and sepsis and rarely presenting as subacute to chronic disease. In this article, we have discussed the spectrum of presentation of melioidosis such as mediastinal lymphadenopathy, cavitating pneumonia, and pleural effusion.
