A previously well 54-year-old woman presented for screening mammography with a 3-day history of an inflamed lump in her right breast. She was subsequently admitted to hospital with acute melioidosis where right breast abscesses were drained. Following recovery and discharge, she was reviewed at the mammographic screening unit where her previous abnormal mammogram was found to be due to melioidosis. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of melioidosis of the breast and its appearance on mammography and ultrasound are described.
