Brucellosis is an infectious disease transmitted from various animal hosts to man. In children the most common route of infection is unpasteurized milk or milk products. Brucellosis affects the urinary tract uncommonly, most frequently causing orchioepididymitis. We report the case of a 4-year-old boy with brucellosis who developed acute focal bacterial nephritis (AFBN), documented by sonography, gallium scan, and computed tomography. After appropriate treatment his symptoms and his sonographic abnormality resolved completely. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of the association of AFBN and brucellosis.
