Objective: Infection, tissue damage, immunologic reactions and the inflammatory process rapidly cause a systemic response in the organism, generally termed as acute phase response. The aim of this study was to evaluate the levels of acute phase reactants such as C- reactive protein (CRP), ferritin and fi brinogen in patients with acute brucellosis.
