Abstract

Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever is a fatal systemic viral infection which is an important health problem in Turkey. Since it leads to diffuse endothelial damage, many complications can be seen during the course of the disease. We report here an atypical presentation of CCHF with acute acalculous cholecystitis and intraabdominal abscess. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
