The first report of Brucella melitensis Rev.1 human brucellosis in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Brucellosis is an emergent and endemic zoonotic disease in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In this report we have diagnosed the first case of human brucellosis in Bosnia and Herzegovina, using molecular and microbiological tests, caused by live attenuated Brucella melitensis Rev.1 strain. The infection was caused through unintentional exposure to vaccination of small ruminants in Bosnia and Herzegovina and without any prior accidental self-injection of vaccine suspension.
