Brucellosis in children in south Jordan
AbstractRetrospectively we evaluated the records of 68 children with brucellosis. We found 58.2% had consumed unpasteurized milk and dairy products. Nonspecific manifestations included: arthralgia [78%], fever [75%] and sweating [60%]. Localized manifestations included limping [75%] and arthritis [54%]. Leukopenia was found in 51% of children and anaemia in 24%. Brucella species was cultured for blood of 16 [23.5%] patients. Combination therapy containing streptomycin was more effective than gentamicin combinations
