A 6-year survey of human brucellosis in a rural area of north-western England and north Wales
  1. Pauline M. Poole


    Experiences in the investigation of human brucellosis during a 6-year period are described and the diagnostic value of the various simple laboratory procedures compared. Patients were divided into three groups on the results of the investigations. Patients in groups I and II showed serological evidence varying in degree, which indicated past infection or repeated exposure to infection. Patients in group III were those suffering from active infection during the investigations. The diagnosis, personal information, clinical features and progress of patients in group III are recorded in some detail. Individual case histories of seven veterinary surgeons are given.
