Background and Purpose: Crimean Congo fever was first characterized in 1944 in the Crimean peninsula and then in 1956 in Congo. Their sameness was recognized after long investigation in the two continents, and was labeled as Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever or CCHF. It is one of the hemorrhagic fevers, which manifests as a sudden onset of high fever, chills; severe headache, dizziness, back and abdominal pain after a short incubation period, CCHF is characterized by a sudden onset of high fever, chills and myalgia, and turns into hemorrhagic phase after five days. The Patient: The patient was a 15-year-old boy treated for brucellosis from 15 days ago and was admitted because of fever, headache and vomiting diagnosed as brucella meningitis. Because of thrombocytopenia, sporadic petecia and epistaxi, diagnosis of CCHF was suspected and reported as positive according to RT-PCR. Conclusion: Likelihood of CCHF in animal husbandry occupations is possible, and since its symptoms are similar to brucellosis, its diagnosis must be considered together with brucellosis.
