Congenital brucellosis is uncommon in neonates, and transplacental transmission is the most common etiology in such case. We reported such case with meningitis and hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy successfully treated with oral rifampicin, trimethoprim + sulfamethoxazole, and injection ceftriaxone and gentamicin. This case illustrates that neonatal brucellosis behaves as a persistent multidrug-resistant sepsis.
