Introduction: Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans through the tick bite, contact with blood and tissues of infected animals in slaughterhouses as well as infected patients in hospital. The mortality rate of CCHF is 20 - 50%.
Case Report: The patient was a 20-year-old man, an Iranian farmer, who lived in Ardabil County. The epidemiologic survey showed that his right leg has been bitten by a tick in the past week. The onset of the disease was a sudden high fever, chills and muscle pain.  Molecular analysis of blood by RT-PCR showed that it was positive for CCHF disease.
Conclusion: Clinical and epidemiological findings are the most important strategies for diagnosis of CCHF disease.
Keywords: Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever, Viral Disease, PCR
