ABSTRACT.

Community-acquired Burkholderia cepacia pneumonia is rare. We report a 29-year-old female who suffered pulmonary tuberculosis and developed community-acquired Burkholderia cepacia pneumonia, which was confirmed by the culture of the pulmonary tissue. The patient received antitubercular therapy. Meanwhile, she was treated with meropenem and minocycline. The patient was followed up for 6 months, and she achieved complete absorption of lung lesions.
