Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a zoonotic disease caused by Nairovirus from the Bunyaviridae family carried through ixodid ticks. CCHF virus is transmitted by tick bite, crushing infected ticks or contact with blood or body fluids of patient with CCHF or viremic animals. The disease is characterized by serious morbidity and mortality as well as multi-systemic involvement. Diagnosis is based on the story, laboratory findings and microbiological evidence. Supportive treatment is the mainstay of CCHF treatment. In this study, two cases of CCHF from Bitlis, Turkey presenting with different symptoms after tick bite are reviewed.
