Sexual transmission of brucellosis has rarely been reported in humans. We describe 2 cases of probable sexual transmission of Brucella from husband to wife. In 1 case, orchidoepididimitis existed, whereas in the other case, the presence of Brucella in the semen in the absence of genital symptoms was demonstrated by polymerase chain reaction.
