Melioidosis is an infectious disease caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei . It occurs predominantly in tropical regions. The manifestations are protean which include pneumonia, visceral abscesses, septic arthritis, osteomyelitis, acute suppurative and chronic granulomatous lesions with involvement of almost all organ systems. Fulminant sepsis is much more common and is associated with high mortality. Hence prompt recognition and early treatment is warranted. We report unusual presentations of urinary tract melioidosis in two diabetic men.
