The comparative analysis of the clinical profile and quality of life of 117 patients with a residual form of brucellosis and lesion of the locomotor apparatus was carried out before and after rehabilitation treatment. The joints of the lower (57.3 %) and upper (41.9 %) extremities were more often affected, combined joint damage was detected in 35 % of
cases. Extra-articular changes (cardiomyopathy) occurred in 58.9 % of patients. In patients with residual brucellosis quality of life was reduced, increased levels of anxiety and depression were more frequent in mild forms (47.9 and 60.6 % respectively). As a result of treatment there was a significant improvement in the parameters of goniometry,
life quality and psychological state of patients.
