Özet

The aim of this study was to indicate the presence of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in an endemic area for Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) in Turkey. Of 39 CCHF suspected cases, one was found to be TBE virus immunoglobulin M positive and seven were TBE virus immunoglobulin G positive. It is important to report this first appearance of the TBE virus in Turkey since 1967.
