Abstract:   (6515 Views)
Background: Many patients with brucellosis complain of symptoms such as tingling and numbness. Objective: To evaluate the sympathetic skin response of patients with brucellosis. Methods: S.S.R test was performed on 30 patients with brucellosis who did not have any other systemic disease as case group and 30 healthy subjects as control group. Findings: The findings indicated significant difference in lower and upper parts of the body between two groups (P<0.05). 46.6% of the patients had abnormal S.S.R. Conclusion: Sympathetic system involvement (Mostly efferent C fibers) is highly suggested in brucellosis.
