Özet

Brucellosis is a rare cause of uveitis, seen more often in developing countries. We report a case of ocular brucellosis, where diagnosis was confirmed with a high Brucella agglutination titer in the vitreous specimen. The case was treated by pars plana vitrectomy and antibiotics. We believe that a vitreous specimen is very important in the diagnosis of ocular brucellosis.
