Chronic Brucella Pyelonephritis with Calcification: Short Review of the Literature and Report of a Case
MetadataShow full item record
The localisation of brucellosis in the urinary tract is an infrequently reported condition. The paucity of recorded cases may be due to the rarity of the condition or to the fact that the profession as a whole is not sufficiently aware of the possibility of urinary tract involvement in brucellosis. Having recently investigated a patient who is suffering from pyelonephritis and cystitis occurring as a complication of brucellosis, we were prompted to publish his case record with the aim of calling the attention of the profession to the various aspects of this disease and emphasising its localisation in the genitourinary system.
