Infections of the blood, pneumonia, and other infections following a surgery are caused by this bacterium. Mild ear infections and skin rashes can occur when the bacterium affects healthy people.
Burkholderia pseudomallei causes the disease Melioidosis; some symptoms are: localized pain, fever, abscess, cough, and weight loss. It is more common in tropical climates, especially Southeast Asia and Australis.
