Structure and strains
Brucella abortus is a Gram-negative bacterium in the family Brucellaceae and is one of the causative agents of brucellosis. The rod-shaped pathogen is classified under the domain Bacteria. The prokaryotic B. abortus is non-spore-forming, non-motile and aerobic.
Brucella ssp. are non-motile bacteria which live as intracellular parasites in a wide spectrum of hosts, particularily farm animals. Infections of humans are mainly caused by Brucella melitensis (Malta fever), Brucella abortus (Morbus Bang), Brucella suis and Brucella canis. The is transmitted by contact with infected animals, their excretions and by contaminated food.

The disease starts with moderate fever. During the acute stage of the disease, the fever rises in the evenings. Additionally, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly or swollen lymph nodes are characteristic symptoms. In Brucella melitensis and Brucella suis infections, undulating fever within afebrile intervals may manifest. Spontaneous healing as well as transition into a chronic stage with a wide spectrum of symptoms is possible. Multiple organs or organ systems, bones or joints can be affected during the chronic stage. Histologically, characteristic granulomas may be observed in infected tissues. Bacterial endocarditis might be fatal if it remains untreated. During the late stage of brucellosis, neurologic and even psychiatric manifestations might occur.
Detection and diagnosis
Direct pathogen detection in culture systems can be performed with punctates from blood, bone marrow, synovia or urine. In this regard the special demands for nutrients have to be taken into account. More rapid results are obtained with serological methods such as agglutination tests. For differentiation between acute and chronic brucellosis, sensitive and specific ELISA test with separate detection of IgG, IgM and IgA antibodies are recommended.
