Abstract

FERREIRA, César Ribeiro; FERREIRA, Celso Ribeiro; TATAGIBA, Thiago Andrade  and  SOUTO FILHO, João Tadeu Damian. Brucella spondylodiscitis: case report. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2002, vol.35, n.3, pp. 255-258. ISSN 0037-8682.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0037-86822002000300010.

Vertebral localization of Brucellosis has a low occurrence nowadays. Because of its rarity, it is essential to pay attention to structural modifications of the vertebral segment caused by bacterial spondylodiscitis. Based on a clinical case, with radiological, anatomicopathological and laboratorial aspects related to the diagnostic and also the treatment of this disease, the authors underscore the importance and serious consequences arising from a late diagnostic definition.

Keywords : Brucella; Brucellosis; Inflammation; Vertebral column; Spondylodiscitis.
