Abstract: Melioidosis is a serious human disease caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. Isolation of B. pseudomallei from human samples had not been reported in Brazil until 2003(Miralles et al. 2004, Braga & Almeida 2005. The purpose of this study was to compare the characteristics of these Brazilian isolates of the species with others reported in the literature, and to alert microbiologists in the region to these characteristics in order to enable them to recognize subsequent cases.In this study three isolates of B. ps… Show more

“…This was done by PCR assay directly from bronchoalveolar lavage and, concomitantly, by culture in blood agar, B. pseudomallei selective agar, and Ashdown agar. The culture was identified phenotypically according to the criteria described for Gram-negative nonfermentative bacilli and by characteristics such as motility and bipolar stain (Virgínio et al, 2006). The colonies that indicate the possibility of B. pseudomallei were submitted to the oxidase test and colistin (10 μg/mL) sensitivity test through disk diffusion in Müeller-Hinton medium.…”
