A second case of a natural infection of melioidosis in a native bird is described. Pseudomonas pseudonallei was isolated in pure culture from the liver, spleen and intestinal contents of a galah (Cacatua roseicapilla). The case was characterised by focal granuloma formation, often associated with necrosis, in the brain, lungs, liver, spleen and kidneys.
