Brucellosis continues to be a significant yet frequently neglected threat to both human and veterinary health. However, the disease remains a diagnostic challenge for most healthcare settings due to the non-specific clinical findings associated with the disease and relative inexperience of both clinicians and laboratories in the identification of the disease as well as its causative agent. We report a case of laboratory-confirmed brucellosis from a tertiary-care hospital in southern India, diagnosed incidentally in a 20-year-old male presenting with acute onset fever along with multisystem signs and symptoms who was previously diagnosed with congenital dyserythropoietic anemia and IgA Nephropathy.
