Brucellosis is an emerging zoonotic disease, but it may be overlooked and misdiagnosed, due to its protean & varied presentation, the absence of awareness and lack of experience among health care providers coupled with limited laboratory facilities. The disease causes diminution of manpower and is of great public health signicance. We present a case series and retrospective analysis of seven children admitted to a tertiary care hospital of coastal Karnataka with a diagnosis of Brucellosis. Their epidemiological characteristics, contact history, clinical features and laboratory parameters were studied. This report aims to create awareness about the disease and highlight the importance of its consideration as a differential diagnosis of Pyrexia of unknown origin.
