Abstracts
Brucellosis is a disease which manifests through a wide range of clinical symptoms, possibly affecting any organ. In the last 15 years, brucellosis has been characterized as an endemic disease in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This case report presents a 58-year-old female who was admitted to the Department of Infectious Diseases of the University Hospital Mostar due to back pain spreading down through legs lasting for two months and fever that appeared two days prior to admission. Epidemiological history revealed that the patient had everyday direct contact with sheep. Diagnostic consideration of brucellosis was confirmed by complement fixation test (CFT). Due to verified neurological deficit, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and bone scintigraphy were performed, confirming spondylodiscitis with epidural abscess on spinal level L5, therefore conservative treatment was prolonged up to a total of 18 months. In this case report, we emphasized the complexity of diagnostic procedures and treatment of severe bone complications of brucellosis.
