Abstract

Brucellar meningoencephalitis is a rare complication of zoonotic brucellosis. A stockman with a previous diagnosis of brucellar spondylitis presented with recurrent episodes of fever, confusion, and headache. He showed lymphocytic pleocytosis and positive agglutinin test for Brucella spp in the cerebrospinal fluid without lesion in brain MRI. Brucellar meningoencephalitis should be included in the differential diagnosis of meningitis in high-risk patients for brucellosis.
