Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The clinical characteristics and the response to treatment with high doses of co-trimoxazole in 12 children with brucellar arthritis were analysed retrospectively. The children lived in an urban area and all but two had a history of unprocessed milk or cheese ingestion. Fever and oligoarthritis of the lower extremities were the most common clinical findings. Control of the disease was achieved by three months of treatment. Compliance with the medication was excellent, and no significant side effects occurred.
