Abstract

Brucellosis is an infection with a widening clinical disease spectrum, has been reported as the causative agent of lumbar spine complications but rarely accompanying CES Injury. We report a female patient with Brucella spondylodiscitis affecting the lumbosacral region resulting in CES due to epidural abscess formation. Brucella spondylodiscitis should be suspected in patients with unexplained neurological features and low back pain in endemic regions. © 2019
