Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is an infectious disease caused by Nairovirus. The causative agent of the disease is transmitted by ticks of Hyalomma genus, and ticks play a role in transmission of the virus between wild animals, livestock and humans. We report two cases with CCHF who were followed in our clinic.
