KRUGER, H J et al. Atypical presentation of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever: Lessons learned. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2019, vol.109, n.2, pp.91-94. ISSN 2078-5135.

The diagnosis of the case in the presence of several comorbidities was complicated and illustrates the importance of maintaining a high index of suspicion for viral haemorrhagic fever in cases presenting with multisystem disease and an epidemiological history that could present opportunities for exposure to a haemorrhagic fever virus.
