Melioidosis is caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei. Even though it affects multiple organs, the most affected organ is lung followed by spleen. It has radiological features which is a mimicker of tuberculosis and is being commonly misdiagnosed as tuberculosis in India. In patients with septicaemia or a fever of unknown aetiology high suspicion is required for the diagnosis. We present a pictorial review of the radiological manifestations in a patient presenting with multi-visceral abscesses which will help radiologists to arrive at an early diagnosis.
