Özet

We report a case of renal abscess caused by brucellosis (renal brucelloma) which was treated by surgery. Renal parenchymal involvement of systemic brucellosis is a very rare condition and relapses after medical treatment, such as solid organ abscess including kidney, should be especially considered. In chronic cases, laboratory findings including polymerase chain-reaction examination is needed for definitive diagnosis.
