Erratum

Since the publication of our article [1], we have become aware [2] that cases of pediatric suppurative parotitis caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei have been previously reported. Therefore the statement “Although melioidosis involves most organs, parotid involvement is rare. To the best of our knowledge, confirmed melioidosis parotitis was not previously reported except for a case that occurred after systemic melioidosis [6]” is inaccurate. It should read :“Pediatric suppurative parotitis caused by B. pseudomallei has already been reported in Thailand by Dance et al. [3], who described 21 cases between 1986 and 1987, and in Cambodia by Stoesser et al. [4], who observed 39 cases of the disease between 2007 and 2011. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of locally acquired B. pseudomallei parotitis in Hainan, China.”
