Melioidosis has varied clinical presentation involving different organs with pneumonia as common pulmonary presentation. Isolated mediastinal lymphadenopathy as presentation is rare. Herein, we describe a case of Melioidosis identified by endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration of subcarinal lymph node. This case stresses the need for clinical suspicion of melioidosis in patients from endemic areas and the role of endobronchial ultrasound in diagnosing it.
