Brucellosis can present with various clinical manifestations due to its wide variety of organ involvement. In very rare cases of
brucellosis, skin lesions can sometimes be the only indicator of the disease in the acute stage of the disease, which may lead
to a misdiagnosis of the disease or a delay in diagnosis. We aimed to emphasize that brucellosis should be considered in the
di erential diagnosis of diseases which cause skin symptoms in people with risk factors living in endemic regions, and that
appropriate serological and microbiological tests should be performed.
