Although brucellosis has received much attention in recent medical literature, there have been few reports of the disease in Egypt and the Middle East.1 During the period of January, 1950, to March, 1952, 100 patients were treated at this institution with various antibiotics for culturally proved caprine brucellosis.2 The inference seems justified that the disease is relatively common in this area but that it is infrequently recognized due to the diagnostic difficulties it presents. This problem in diagnosis is by no means regional, and for this reason it seems worth while to report the clinical and laboratory features of brucellosis
