Abstract

Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome is a rare condition characterized by duodenal obstruction due to extrinsic compression by SMA. Any condition which results in rapid, significant weight loss can cause SMA syndrome. Brucellosis is a common cause of pyrexia of unknown origin which can result in loss of appetite and weight loss. Brucellosis resulting in SMA syndrome has not been described in literature. We present a case of SMA syndrome resulting from weight loss due to brucellosis along with a brief review of relevant literature
