Amplification of nucleic acid by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays in order to diagnose infection by Brucella spp. has been used for more than two decades. Human Brucellosis is an endemic disease in many countries worldwide and often poses diagnostic puzzles. The implementation of PCR (standard, real-time and multiplex) can help in the accurate differential diagnosis and distinguish between acute, subacute and chronic cases. PCR has also been used for follow up of patients and serotype identification of Brucella spp. Overall PCR is a promising and reliable technique for the diagnosis of Human Brucellosis. Purpose of this brief report is to identify possible alternatives for rapid and accurate diagnosis of Brucellosis using PCR.
