Aim. In children with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), the aim of present study was to determine the cerebral hemodynamic changes assessed with Doppler ultrasonography with measurements of lumen diameter (LD), peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), resistive index (RI), pulsatility index (PI), and total cerebral blood flow volume (tCBFV) of common carotid artery (CCA), internal carotid artery (ICA, and vertebral artery (VA).
