Melioidosis is an emerging tropical disease. Central nervous system (CNS) melioidosis may present as a brain abscess or encephalomyelitis mimics tuberculosis. Early diagnosis and management decreases mortality as well as morbidity. This case of brain abscess and encephalomyelitis in a young man with no known comorbidities was a diagnostic challenge. The surgery helped in debulking as well as isolating the causative organism. Appropriate antibiotic therapy for melioidosis was lifesaving and prevented further complications.
