Aims: Brucellosis is an infectious disease which can mimic rheumatoid diseases due to its osteoarticular (OA) involvements. Treatment failure and recurrences have not been completely eliminated yet in patients with OA brucellosis. This study aimed to investigate rheumatologic manifestations observed in patients with OA brucellosis and the outcomes of combination therapy with doxycycline and rifampicin (DR) in such patients.
