Özet

Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a viral haemorrhagic disease, mostly transmitted by tick bites. It is clear that ignorance of the necessary precautions results in nosocomial infections in health care settings. Post exposure ribavirin prophylaxis is not well described. We report 2 cases of nosocomial CCHF infections.
