Abstract

Aim: Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is transmitted by infected ticks or through contaminated blood, tissue, and body fluids. Pathological laboratory results, such as thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, and anemia, along with biochemistry and coagulation parameters, can be used for its diagnosis and the determination of its prognosis.
