Brucella Myocarditis in a 3-Month-Old Probable Transplacental Transmission
Abstract A 3-month-old girl presented with myocarditis owing to brucellosis. Her mother had been diagnosed with brucellosis at 28 weeks gestation but did not receive treatment until after delivery. The infant had intrauterine retardation and had gained little weight since birth. It is considered likely that the brucellosis was transmitted transplacentaly.
