Of the 20 cases, 12 had meningitis [‎acute and subacute]‎, 4 had meningoencephalitis, 2 had myelopathy, 1 had polyradiculopathy and 1 had meningovascular complications manifested by stroke. The most prevalent symptoms were headache [‎75%]‎, vomiting and fever [‎50%]‎ and unconsciousness [‎35%]‎. Among 20 neurobrucellosis patients, 1 died and the other 19 recovered; 14 fully recovered and 5 patients had residual neurological deficits.
