Brucellosis is a major public health concern worldwide with a prevalence of 10/1 lakh population. Although brucellosis is endemic in several countries it goes under-diagnosed and under-reported. The diverse presentations of brucellosis have led clinicians a challenge in its diagnosis and management. Musculoskeletal manifestation and lesions of spine are the common focal manifestation of brucellosis. Differentiating Brucella spondylitis from tubercular spondylitis is a clinical challenge. We herewith highlight the prevalence of brucellosis, the need, and method for early diagnosis and management to prevent disability and mortality.
