Brucellosis is a systemic infectious disease with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Arthritis is frequently observed in its course and may be one of the main presenting clinical features of the disease. We report a case of brucellar monoarthritis of the knee with a prolonged clinical course despite efficient antibiotic treatment.
