Abstract

Brucellosis is a zoonosis of worldwide importance caused by Brucella abortus or B. melitensis in cattle, buffaloes and camels, and by B. melitensis in sheep and goats. Human contagion occurs through contact with infected animals or contaminated dairy products. Main clinical signs in animals are infertility, abortion or premature births and retained placenta in females, and epididymo-orchitis in males. This chapter describes the main microbiological, antigenic and molecular characteristics of Brucella spp., clinical and epidemiological features of the infection, bacteria resistance and survival conditions in milk or dairy products and diagnostic methods and control strategiesof animal brucellosis.
