Abstract
Brucellosis is an important preventable disease for our country. To investigate by sharing our experience, 140 patients between January 1997 and December 2006 are watched out retrospectively. 113 patients were men and 27 patients were women. The prevalence of age was 27 ± 3.6 (19-72). Osteoarticular system is the most affected system with the prevalence of 41% of patients. The mostly seen clinical symptoms are; night sweat (81%), fatigue (76%), osteoarticular ache (65%). Since 46 % of our cases are closely related to high risk occupations for Brucellosis like animal breeding and agriculture, and this datum supports the classical understanding of Brucellosis epidemiology.

Key words: Brucellosis, clinical features, laboratory findings, complications



Bruselloz: 140 Olgunun Geriye Dönük Olarak İrdelenmesi

Özet
Ülkemiz açısından önem arz eden ve önlenebilir bir enfeksiyon olan bruselloz ile ilgili deneyimlerimizi sunarak konuyu irdelemek amacıyla; Ocak 1997 - Aralık 2006 yılları arasında yatırılarak takip ve tedavi edilen 140 bruselloz olgusu geriye dönük olarak değerlendirilmiştir. Olguların 113’ü erkek, 27’si kadın olup; yaş ortalamaları 27  3,6 (19 -72) idi. Sistem tutulumları içerisinde kas iskelet sistemi tutulumu, %41 ile en sık görülen sistem tutulumunu oluşturmuştur. Klinik belirti-bulgu olarak en sık görülenler; gece terlemesi (%81), halsizlik (%76), eklem ağrıları (%65) olmuştur. Olgularımızın %46’sının bruselloz açısından riskli meslek olan tarım ve hayvancılıkla uğraşıyor olması, bruselloz epidemiolojisi hakkındaki klasik bilgileri destekler niteliktedir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Bruselloz, klinik özellikler, laboratuar bulguları, komplikasyonlar
