Brucellosis is a systemic infectious disease, which constitutes a public health problem in Turkey. Brucellosis has a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Osteoarthicular manifestations are often seen in brucellosis but most of the brucellar monoarthritis cases are reactive rather than being septic. We report a case of brucellar (septic) monoarthritis of the knee in a 74-year-old cattleman and review of the literature.
