Abstract:   (6145 Views)
Manifestations involving the nervous system (neurobrucellosis), is a treatable infection, however it is not well documented. Direct invasion of the central nervous system occurs in fewer than 5% of cases. Acute or chronic meningitis is the most frequent nervous system complication. However, hemiplegia and cranial nerve involvement are rarely encountered. In this report we present a patient with “seventh cranial nerve palsy” and “hemiplegia,” as the manifestations of probable neurobrucellosis. Thus, in endemic area, brucellosis should be ruled out in patients who develop unexplained neurological symptoms such as hemiplegia.
