It is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick and via direct contact with blood or tissue from infected humans and livestock. In this article, we report four cases of CCHF disease in men of age 21, 28, 29, and 33 years. Two patients were butchers and two were farmers. CCHF should be considered in patients with fever, bleeding, and low platelet counts. Copyright © Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
