Brucellosis Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Brucellosis is an infectious disease due to the various species of the bacteria genus Brucella that causes rising and falling fevers, sweats, malaise, weakness, anorexia, headache, myalgia (muscle pain) and back pain. It also called undulant fever because the fever is typically undulant, rising and falling like a wave. Brucellosis is transmitted through contaminated and untreated milk and milk products and by direct contact with infected animals (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, camels, buffaloes, wild ruminants and, very recently, seals), and animal carcasses.
