Abstract: RESUMO RelataA melioidose, causada pela bactéria Burkholderia pseudomallei, é uma doença geograficamente limitada a algumas regiões da Ásia e Oceania, incluindo a Índia e a Austrália 10 11 , não tendo sido descrita no Brasil até o momento, nenhum relato de caso fatal autopsiado. Embora a Burkholderia seja considerada de ocorrência universal 5 , apenas as espécies Burkholderia cepaceae e Burkolderia mallei foram diagnosticadas no Ceará 4 . A apresentação da doença varia de um acometimento fulminante a casos pro… Show more

“…Autopsy results from patient 2 in the original case cluster were similar to those of the culture-positive third case-patient and were consistent with melioidosis ( 3 ). The 1 survivor of the case cluster (Brazil outbreak 1, patient 4) seroconverted (titer = 1:160) from an undetectable indirect hemagglutination assay (IHA) titer around the time of her infection.…”

“…Gram-negative bacilli were isolated by blood culture from 2 children, patient 2 and patient 3. For patient 2, the isolate did not survive preliminary laboratory analysis, but findings at autopsy were consistent with melioidosis ( 3 ). In patient 3, the isolate was presumptively identified as B. 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.…”
