Abstract

A case of Brucella melitensis infection presenting as an arthritis of the hip joint is descriptionbed. A review of the literature reveals it to be an uncommon form of presentation, but Brucellosis should be borne in mind in considering the differential diagnosis of arthritis of the hip joint. The immediate therapeutic response to Aureomycin alone was satisfactory, but relapse followed, and this responded satisfactorily to a combination of Dihydrostreptomycin and Aureomycin.
