Abstract

Brucellosis is the most common bacterial zoonotic infection causing human infections worldwide. Although the disease in domestic animals has been controlled in most developed countries, human brucellosis remains an endemic public health threat in several parts of the world, affecting especially the pediatric population. The aim of this chapter is to summarize the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of childhood brucellosis, and discuss the public health agenda for eradicating the disease.
