Background: Although there have been a number of studies on the pathogenesis of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) recently, knowledge on this topic is still insufficient. This study aims to reveal the kinetics of serum CCHF virus (CCHFV) titers, serum levels of anti-CCHFV immunoglobulin (Ig) G, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10, and interferon (IFN)-gamma in CCHF patients.
