ABSTRACT A prospective study was performed to determine the rate at which patients with melioidosis are infected with more than one strain of Burkholderia pseudomallei . Genotyping of 2,058 bacterial colonies isolated from 215 samples taken from 133 patients demonstrated that mixed infection is uncommon (2/133 cases [1.5%; 95% confidence interval, 0.2 to 5.3%]).
