Abstract
Melioidosis which is known to be endemic in South-east Asia and Northern Australia is a treatable infection and is more common than currently appreciated. It is now expanding rapidly to other regions of the world predominantly in the Indian subcontinent. The key for successful management of this disease lies in facilitating rapid and accurate diagnosis by expert personnel and timely selection of adequate sensitive antibiotics. We present here a series of three cases of melioidosis involving lung and pleura along with clinico radiological and treatment details.

Key words: Burkholderia pseudomallei, Co-trimoxazole, Melioidosis, Whitmore’s disease
