Özet

Brucellosis is a zoonosis that affects several organs or systems. Large joint involvements are more commonly observed in brucellosis. However, small joint involvements are also seen and sternoclavicular arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis and tenosynovitis are rare complications of brucellosis. Here, we present a case of brusellosis with sternoclavicular joint involvement and complicated by supraspinatus tendonitis and biceps tenosynovitis. Brucellosis should be included in the differential diagnosis of longstanding small joint pain in regions where brucellosis is endemic.
