Abstract

Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease, which may be manifested by multisystemic involvement. While the complications related to musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal system are frequently seen, those related to the other systems are rarely encountered. In this paper, we present a brucellosis lymphadenitis case in the right side of the neck in a 20 years old female patient, presenting with a mass formation in the soft tissue mimicking scrofuloderma, with dimensions of 10x6x4 cm. Especially in endemic areas, brucellosis lymphadenitis should also be remembered in addition to scrofuloderma
