Abstract: Brucellosis is a widespread zoonosis in many parts of the world. Neurologic complications including meningitis, meningoencephalitis, brain abscess, myelitis, radiculoneuritis, peripheral and cranial neuropathies, and psychiatric manifestations are rarely encountered, especially in children. In this report, we present a 13-year-old adolescent boy with chronic Brucella meningitis and hearing loss who was given antibrucellosis treatment for 6 months and subsequently underwent cochlear implantation.
