Abstract

Osteomyelitis caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei is an uncommon presentation of melioidosis. The clinical diagnosis of melioidosis is difficult as the signs and symptoms are non-specific and the duration of symptoms varies widely. We present two cases of melioidotic septic arthritis, one associated with tibial osteomyelitis and another involving the femur.
