Brucellosis is an infectious disease involving many organs and tissues. We investigated retrospectively the brucellosis cases at our hospital, in order to study the relationship between clinical, laboratory and therapy findings, and relapse rates. We found that relapse was related to a positive family history, living in a rural area and the presence of complications.
