Abstract

Brucellosis is one of the most common laboratory-acquired infections, mostly because aerosolization is a mechanism of transmission in this setting. We report an exposure to Brucella melitensis that occurred in a large microbiology laboratory and describe the strategy chosen for antibiotic prophylaxis and serological follow-up of exposed workers.
