About this book


Brucellosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases, occurring in many parts of the world. It manifests itself in all the tissues and organs of the body and attracts the attention of a correspondingly multidisciplinary body of medical practitioners and researchers. Even 17 so-called brucellosis-free countries experience the disease. Some patients contract the disease in their country of origin and present a diagnostic trap to the unwary clinicians. In this volume a full description of the clinical aspect and pathology of the disease is given, and current treatment is discussed. This updated edition includes five new chapters: Endocrinal Brucellosis, Difficulties in Diagnosis and Management, HIV and Brucellosis, Bioterrorism and Brucellae, and Spondylitis with Neurobrucellosis. The book presents a complete, up-to-date picture of the disorder and should appeal to clinicians, students, researchers and also to veterinarians.
