We report a case of Brucella abortus-induced brucellosis that displayed high hepatic transaminases similar to that in acute hepatitis, fourth month relapsed following doxycycline-streptomycin treatment, and developed doxycycline-related hepatotoxicity in second treatment. Brucella hepatitis may occur with various Brucella spp. and may relapse even following effective
treatment.
