Abstract

Background & objectives: Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) can be fatal with bleeding, shock and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC). Although similar genetic strains have been defined, the causes of the clinical differences between the cases are yet to be found. We aimed to demonstrate the balance between oxidant and antioxidant system in CCHF.
