The article discusses a case of Brucella species-associated meningoencephalitis in a dolphin found at Gwithian in Cornwall, England. The animal underwent postmortem examination. Results have shown that the dolphin has several plerocercoid cysts known as Phyllobothrium delphini and larger plerocercoid cysts identified as Monorygma grimaldii. It is also found that there are histopathological changes in its central nervous system associated with the isolation of Brucella species from the brain.
