This case demonstrates transient dysplasia in two cell lines associated with brucellosis infection which completely resolved upon treatment. Brucellosis is an important public health problem in the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures, where animal husbandry including cattle grazing is an integral part of daily life in rural areas. This is the first report to our knowledge of brucellosis causing transient myelodysplasia in a brucella endemic area.
