Abstract

Brucellosis is a multisystem disease with a broad spectrum of clinical manifestations. Hematologic complications in the form of mild pancytopenia are occasionally reported in the course of acute brucellosis. Rarely, thrombocytopenia is severe and can be associated with purpura and mucosal bleeding. Epistaxis as the initial manifestation of brucellosis is a rarely reported phenomenon. A case of young adult is being reported who presented with epistaxis due to brucellosis-induced thrombocytopenia
