Abstract

Background & objective, Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease whose most common complications include intermittent fever, headache, fatigue, weight loss, night sweats, joint pain, osteomyelitis, spondylitis, peripheral arthritis, sacroiliitis, etc. In this study, the epidemiology of brucellosis in Dehloran, Iran between 2015 and 2019 was studied. Methods, This study was conducted from February 2015 to November 2018 in Dehloran, Ilam province, Iran. Patients with certain symptoms such as pain were selected and referred to the lab. The samples were collected and investigated by Wright test. Results, Brucellosis in Dehloran is an occupational disease with most cases occurring in livestock breeders followed by housewives. Most cases are due to the consumption of dairy products such as milk. Conclusion, In general, it can be argued that in spite of the high incidence of the disease in this region, adequate attention has not yet been paid to it. Due to the occupational nature of the disease in the region, vaccination, disease surveillance and slaughter of infected animals are also recommended. Livestock should also be purchased through the cooperatives of livestock breeders and transported to dairy factories so that contaminated milk will not be delivered to the public.
