||Jan.-Mar. 1985, Vol.32, No.126, p.3-15. Illus. 9 ref.
||The first part of this article is a review of the causes, pathology, epidemiology and socio-economical aspects of this contagious bacterial disease transferred from domestic animals or animal products to man. The second part is a presentation of an epidemiologic study of 651 cases of brucellosis from 1978 to 1982 in the province of Soria, Spain. The number of cases increased considerably during the period but this could be due to better diagnostic methods and greater awareness and knowledge concerning the disease and its symptoms. The disease affected more men (73.57%) than women, and preferentially young adults. In 44.76% of the cases the disease was transmitted directly from animals and in 12.06% of the cases through food.
