Brucellosis is a bacterial zoonosis transmitted directly or indirectly to humans from infected animals. We report a case of 56 year old male with history of fever with myalgias and night sweats for more than 20 days. He was evaluated exhaustively for cause of fever but nothing significant was found. Keeping remote possibility of brucellosis, his blood sample was sent for brucella serology which was found positive. Patient was started on rifampicin and doxycyclline and he responded immediately. Retrospectively history of consumption of raw goat milk was obtained.
