Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: Brucellosis is a zoonosis still endemic in many parts of the world including coastal countries of Mediterranean Sea, Middle East regions and Central and South America. Now in this study we surveyed whether patients with systemic brucellosis, BAEP differ from healthy persons or not. This will help us later, when the patients with brucellosis refer to perform BAEP to prevent misdiagnosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients with acute systemic brucellosis without neurological involvement and 15 apparently healthy persons underwent a brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) study. RESULTS: Comparison of pooled data between the systemic brucellosis and healthy groups showed no significant differences in all BAEP parameters. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, BAEP parameters in brucellosis group did not differ from healthy persons. Thus in interpretation of BAEP in patients that referred for another reason and have systemic brucellosis, it is not necessary to consider about the effect of brucellosis on BAEP.
