Abstract:   (1997 Views)
Brucellosis is a kind of zoonosis and an important health problem in some areas. This disease especially can affect skeletal, neurological and genitourinary systems. Spleen abscesses are one of its serious but uncommon complications. A 48-year-old male with severe abdominal pain, fever and sweating visited the hospital. After examinations, the serological Wright test and Coombs serology test were obtained and their results were both negative but the blood culture test revealed he is infected with brucellosis. After 2 days with antibiotic therapy, the serological Wright test and Coombs serology test were performed again and resulted in positive. So when a patient is diagnosed with splenic abscesses and infectious symptoms but serology tests are negative with brucellosis, we cannot decline this disease and further tests should perform.
