Bacteria Is the Burkholderia species of bacteria high yield?

I've never seen this species before starting USMLE consult qbank, but ive already seen 3 questions on this species.

I dont recall seeing this species in Kaplan, FA or MRS.

Is it high-yield?

I've seen this bacteria commonly but in the hospital.

One thing i came across UW, is that it is Catalase +, making CGD patients susceptible to this bacteria, please check this, since it's just in my head and it's somewhere lost in my UW notes.

you get a traveler or immigrant from Thailand or Australia pneumonia like symptoms think Melioidosis caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei

Immuno compromised due to any reason think pseudomonas and other pathogens first and second Burkholderia cepacia

the thing that will trigger you towards Burkholderia cepacia will be resistant shown in a immunocompromised guy in hospital by almost all antibiotics

Melioidosis, the disease caused by Burkholderia cepacia, is supposedly common in Southeast Asia (a buzzword). I'm from Southeast Asia... and I only read/heard about it in a medical microbiology textbook. LOL!
