Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease which has diminished in its prevalence. It is caused by gram negative coccobacilli bacteria of the genus Brucella. Due to its non- specific presentation and varied complications in humans the differential diagnosis is vast. Some of the conditions which must be ruled out include salmonellosis, chlamydiosis, camplyobacteriosis, Q fever and many other viral diseases. Definitive diagnosis can only be made when brucellae are recovered from the infected tissues, like blood and bone marrow.
