Abstract: Two cases of maternal to child transmission of melioidosis are reported from Australia's tropical north. One infant died of overwhelming sepsis. Both lactating mothers had mastitis. In 1 case, Burkholderia pseudomallei isolated from breast milk was identical on pulsed-field gel electrophoresis with that in blood and cerebrospinal fluid isolates from the infant.
