Brucellosis is a common zoonotic disease in our country caused by Brucella species, a gram negative coccobacillus that is transmitted by oral ingestion of unpasteurized milk and dairy products or by close contact with infected animal secretions. Because brucellosis has nonspecific symptoms and findings, it can mimic many other diseases. Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a zoonotic disease included in the differential diagnosis of brucellosis. In this article, two pediatric cases referred with a pre-diagnosis of CCHF and diagnosed with brucellosis were presented.
