Abstract
Melioidosis is a potentially fatal infectious disease usually seen in, but not restricted to the tropical areas of the world. Burkholderia pseudomallei, a soil saprophytic bacterium are the causative agent. It can produce latent infection and reactivate many years after initial exposure and can have varied clinical presentations. Here we put forward an unusual yet successfully treated case of melioidosis presenting as mycotic pseudoaneurysm of superficial femoral artery. A 62 year old male patient came with a one and a half month old history of swelling and pain in the left thigh. Culture of blood and pus samples from the patient yielded Burkholderia pseudomallei. Combinations of surgical and medical management lead to a good outcome in the patient. J Microbiol Infect Dis 2018; 8(4):162-164.

Key words: melioidosis, pseudoaneurysm, superficial femoral artery
