Brucellosis is an important zoonotic disease that remains a world-wide public health problem. Pulmonary involvement in the course of brucellosis is an extremely rare condition reported about 1-5% of the cases. Here, we present a case with pulmonary brucellosis, and hypogonadotropic (secondary) hypogonadism referred to our tertiary medical center for further evaluation about eunuchoidism and delayed puberty when he was applied to the primary care center with the complaint of only non-productıve cough. Clinicians should consider the possibility of brucellosis being the cause of respiratory symptoms, even in the absence of other frequent symptoms of brucellosis particularly osteoarticular problems.

Key words: Brucellosis; Pneumonia; Hypogonadism
