A case of brucellosis endocarditis, a rare complication of brucellosis, was detected as part of an undifferentiated febrile illness surveillance study conducted in Georgia. The case was further superinfected with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus MRSA during the hospital stay. To our knowledge, this is one of only a few reports of brucellosis endocarditis cases with MRSA superinfection.
