Abstract

Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a fatal viral hemorrhagic fever and is usually transmitted to humans by tick bite, or exposure to infected blood or tissues of infected livestock or humans. Although children can be infected with the CCHF virus, infection is unusual in the younger age group. Early diagnosis and treatment of CCHF infection is critical to the survival of patients and the control of the disease. In this article, we underline current therapeutic approaches to CCHF infection in children.
