    Burkholderia gladioli

          B.gladioli, a non-fermentative gram-negative bacillus, is primarily a plant pathogen which causes decay of gladiolus plants, onion bulbs, and mushrooms. The genus Burkholderia was previously classified as Pseudomonads but because of phenotypic differences between them, many Pseudomonas like species are currently transferred to this new genus including Burkholderia gladioli, Burkholderia cepacia,Burkholderia pseudomallei, Burkholderia mallei, Burkholderia caryophylli etc. Since its identification in 1992 many case reports have implicated B.gladioli as a human pathogen primarily causing infection in immunocompromised individuals. When the infection is in the form of dermatitis, the skin weeps fluid with a bluish tinge!
