Brucellosis is a major bacterial zoonosis with significant economical and zoonotic impact. The causative organisms are gram-negative facultative intracellular pathogens that may affect a range of different mammals including man, cattle, sheep, goats, swine, rodents and marine mammals. In most host species, the disease primarily affects the reproductive system with concomitant loss in productivity of the animals affected. Eradication of brucellosis has been a goal for many countries, with success in several countries in northern Europe. Those countries that do eradicate infection cannot afford to be complacent as the threat of reintroduction is ever present through the movement of livestock.
