Background: Brucellosis, a zoonotic disease caused by Brucella spp., is an endemic infectious disease in many developing countries that causes signi?cant economic loss. Case Report: Here, we would like to report an unusual case of human brucellosis; a 32-year-old woman who was undergone cesarean and immediately became febrile after operation. An unusual cause of post-operative fever was diagnosed brucellosis by using serologic tests. She had been treated with a combination of antimicrobials with significant clinical improvement. Conclusion: Obstetricians in endemic areas such as Iran should consider brucellosis as an unknown cause of fever.
