I have had sex with someone who had brucellosis 30 years ago. Does anyone know any further information as to whether it can be spread from person to person?

  • Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease, meaning that it may be transmitted from animals to humans and no human-to-human transmission has been identified. Brucellosis is caused by brucella bacteria. It is sometimes carried by domestic animals (cattle, swine, goats, dogs) and transmitted by ingesting infected food or direct contact with an infected animal.
