Brucellosis

Common Name(s)

Brucellosis

Brucellosis is a disease caused by the bacteria Brucella that mainly infects farm animals. Most people contract this disease when eating or drinking unpasteurized milk, cheese, or ice cream that came from infected animals. Infection may also occur if people come into direct contact with an infected animal’s internal tissues, blood, urine, or bodily fluids. Symptoms of brucellosis include flu-like symptoms of fever, chills, sweats, headaches, muscle aches, joint pains, back pain, and physical weakness. Longer lasting symptoms are recurrent fevers, joint pains, and fatigue. Brucellosis is most commonly found in countries and areas of the world outside of the United States, particularly in countries near the Mediterranean, including Portugal, Spain, Southern France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and North Africa. Brucellosis can be treated by taking antibiotics.
