This is the causative agent of melioidosis.

This is quite interesting and I thought I would pass it along. In these days of worldwide travel, no telling what you future docs might find in your patients. It has been a common pathogen isolated from troops of all nationalities that have served in areas with endemic disease, but is rarely isolated on U.S. soil in the absence of travel to endemic areas.
