The aim of the study was to systematically evaluate the clinical, radiological and prognostic features of 11 patients with Brucella Vertebral Osteomyelitis (BVO) in line with the literature. Microbiological and radiological features of patients who were diagnosed with BVO in a tertiary care center between the dates January 2016 and January 2019 were classified, then compared. The data obtained were statistically evaluated. Alpha significance value was considered as P <0.05. Clinical, radiological and prognostic features of the patients should be evaluated carefully. Patients with an accurate diagnosis should be treated in a multidisciplinary manner. The rational use of antibiotics should be respected during antimicrobial therapy. Surgical treatment should be provided immediately in the event of therapeutic failure.
