The Editor,

Sir,

Involvement of implanted electronic cardiac devices by haematogenous seeding of brucellosis is quite rare. To our knowledge nearly 10 cases of pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) infection and a few cases of transvenous lead endocarditis caused by brucella has been described in the literature .
