Brucellosis is a bacterial infection that causes miscarriage and preterm birth in the second half of pregnancy. It can be found in livestock, such as cattle, deer, dogs, pigs, goats, sheep, and various other wild animals. Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease that can also infect humans by having contact with infected animals or animal products. Bacteria may enter the body through skin wounds or conjunctiva exposure. Symptoms include chills, headaches, and joint pain. The most crucial step when diagnosing brucellosis is checking its clinical manifestation and causative agents. Therefore, culture tests, serologic tests, and qualitative PCR tests are performed for diagnostic tests.
