Objective: Laboratory diagnosis of Brucella canis infections cannot be made by classical serological methods as readily as infections of other species of Brucella pathogenic for humans. Therefore, the information about B. canis infections in Turkey is limited. In this study, we aimed to detect presence of B. canis coinfections in humans who were diagnosed as brucellosis.
