Abstract

We recently managed 4 patients with cystic fibrosis who had acquired Burkholderia pseudomallei infection after exposure in a region of endemicity. Person-to-person transmission between 2 siblings may have occurred; otherwise, the evidence suggests that cystic fibrosis may increase the likelihood of infection with this organism, and patients should be warned of this possibility and cautioned to avoid high-risk activities.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 November 2019.
All research outputs
#11,979,586
of 15,055,070 outputs
Outputs from Clinical Infectious Diseases
#10,519
of 12,094 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#194,981
of 285,232 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Clinical Infectious Diseases
#188
of 242 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,055,070 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 12,094 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 15.1. This one is in the 4th percentile – i.e., 4% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 285,232 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 18th percentile – i.e., 18% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 242 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 5th percentile – i.e., 5% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
