Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a tick-borne disease caused by a arbovirus. It is asymptomatic in infected animals but a serious threat to the health of individuals. In human, it starts with nonspecific febrile diseases and progresses into severe hemorrhagic syndrome with high-casual fatality. Here, we report a case of CCHF with atypical presentation of ascending paralysis and rhabdomyolysis.
