Spondylodiscitis caused by Brucella melitensis after consumption of unpasteurised camel milk

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V11180769

This is a case report of a 76-year-old man with spondylodiscitis caused by Brucella melitensis. He was admitted to hospital due to backpain, weight loss and elevated C-reactive protein level. MRI showed signs of multifocal spondylodiscitis, and blood cultures yielded B. melitensis. The patient was most likely infected through consumption of unpasteurised camel milk. Antibiotic treatment was initiated with good effect. Although brucellosis is rare in Denmark, correct diagnosis is important due to the high morbidity, the specific antibiotic treatment needed and the necessary laboratory precautions.
