Resumen A survey of human burcellosis in the USA during the period 1961-1970. The number of cases decreased from 636 in 1961 to 411 and 224 in 1970, a decline which is explained by the marked drop in the incidence of the disease in animals. The major problem relates to swine, in which the rate of disease is about 1%. Numerous statistical data are presented in tables. Most cases of human brucellosis were found in packing plants, particularly in slaughtering areas. Several cases of infection occurred in maintenance personnel, etc., who had no contact with raw meat.
