A 70-year-old Turkish man with malaise and scrotal pain
We describe the case of a 70-year-old Turkish man, living in Belgium, in whom we diagnosed brucellosis based upon a history of prolonged malaise, the development of orchi-epididymitis and a recent stay in his homeland. A short overview of the epidemiology, clinical course and treatment of this very rarely in Belgium reported zoonosis is given.
