Abstract

Introduction: Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a zoonotic disease frequently transmitted by tick bite and accompanied by fever and bleeding. It may cause important public health problems. Besides clinical symptoms and epidemiological history, blood count and biochemical test results are the first clues for CCHF. In this study, we aimed to retrospectively evaluate 16 patients who were followed and treated due to CCHF in our hospital.
