Melioidosis is gram-negative bacterial infection endemic in parts of Australia and Asia with significant morbidity and mortality. It is acquired in wet rainy seasons through occupational and recreational activities. Although central nervous system (CNS) involvement is seen in less than 10%, it can have severe sequelae. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) findings in reported cases have shown predominant brain stem and frontoparietal involvement. We present three pediatric cases of neuromelioidosis in which corticospinal tract involvement was a characteristic finding.
