Brucellosis is a common infectious disease which is common in Turkey, as in other Mediterranean country. Brucellosis is a zoonosis which humans contact either by direct contact with infected animals or ingestion of raw meat or unpasteurized milk from such animals. Brucellosis caused various symptoms such as muscle and joint pain and headache. Neurobrucellosis may cause paresis, neuritis, meningoencephalitis, myelitis, psychosis and rarely Guillain-Barré Syndrome. Diagnosis of brucellosis is difficult because of the nonspecific symptoms of the disease. Definite diagnosis was made by the isolation of microorganism from blood, cerebro spinal fluid, bone marrow and other tissues. We discuss two cases with paraparesia due to brucellosis.
