Özet

In this article, a case of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) and visceral leishmaniasis coinfection in a 14-month-old girl is reported. The case has been evaluated according to two different points of view based on the coexistence of CCHF and visceral leishmaniasis and a strongly suggested horizontal transmission of CCHF from her father. To the best of our knowledge, this coinfection has not been previously reported in literature.
