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