Treatment with a combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole proved lifesaving in a patient with pulmonary melioidosis after therapeutic failure occurred with other antibiotics to which the organisms were sensitive in vitro. Antagonistic interaction of drugs occurred when the combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole was given along with other antibiotics. The combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole should be considered a major addition to the pharmacologic armamentarium for the treatment of pulmonary melioidosis.
