Burkholderia mallei and Pseudomonas mallei are different terms for the same organism.
Burkholderia mallei is a gram-negative non-sporing bacillus. Burkholderia mallei is the causative agent of glanders, an infectious disease found mostly in horses. Glanders is characterised by nodular lesions in the lung and ulcers in the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. Acute disease can cause death from septicaemia in a few days while chronic disease can linger for months. Humans can be infected through direct contact with an infected animal. In humans the infection may be rapidly fatal. Glanders has been eliminated in North America, Australia and most of Europe, but remains endemic in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Central and South America.
The use of B. mallei as a biological weapon has been reported and as there is currently no vaccine available for either humans or animals it remains a possible target for biological warfare.
