Abstract

Brucellosis may lead to complications that affect different organ systems, including the liver and spleen. In acute disease, hepatosplenic abscess is a rare complication. We report herein a woman with splenic abscess due to acute Brucella melitensis infection who was successfully treated with antibiotics alone.
