Abstract
Human brucellosis is an endemic zoonotic disease that is rare in Korea. However, there have been regional increases in its prevalence. Spondylodiscitis is a common osteoarticular complication of brucellar infection and is difficult to diag nose- because the clinical presentation is often variable and nonspecific. We report the case of a 56-year-old male with brucellar spondylodiscitis who was from Gyeongsangbuk-do, an endemic region of bovine brucellosis in Korea.
