MetadataShow full item record
Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is an infectious and potentially lethal syndrome caused by various types of viruses. Infected ticks transmit the virus to humans via their bite. The symptoms include fever, jaundice, Diarrhea, headache, sore throat, encephalopathy, generally feeling unwell and muscular aches. In severe cases, haemorrhage (bleeding) from small blood vessels leads to a red rash forming on the membranes of the eyes, inside of the eyelids, mouth, skin the internal organs, seizures and death. We herein present neurological data and EEG results of two cases of CCHF which demonstrated confusional symptoms as neurological symptom and dominance of slow-wave in anterior quadrant.
