Abstract:
Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is one of the deadly hemorrhagic fevers that are endemic in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. It is a tick-borne zoonotic viral disease caused by CCHF virus. CCHF not only forms an important public health threat but has a significant effect on the healthcare personnel, especially in resource-poor countries. India has always been a potentially endemic area until an outbreak hit parts of Gujarat, taking many lives. The current review is an attempt to summarize the updated knowledge on the disease particularly in modern era, with special emphasis on diagnosis of disease. The knowledge about the disease may help take precautions regarding entry of virus in India and future threat to community.
