Abstract

Brucellosis is a bacterial infection between humans and animals which is transferred from animals to human. Brucellosis is native in Iran and Middle East region, its frequency and various faces of occurrence made us study the epidemiologic features of brucellosis disease in referring patients to Fasa city during 2006-2007. This research was a retrospective cross-sectional investigation. 136 patients were included in this study with definitive diagnosis of brucellosis during 2 years that 82 ones were male and 54 ones were female. According to job, the maximum prevalence was in occupational groups of ranchers, housewives and students, and the minimum prevalence was in clerks. 56.61% of patients used non-pasteurized milk, 6.61% from contaminated cheese, and 36.76% both nonpasteurized milk and contaminated cheese. We concluded that varied and nonspecific symptoms of all disease like fever and sweating, weight loss, headache, loss of appetite, joint pains, and neurological problems by brucellosis should be considered in native places.
