Similarity and Difference in Characteristics of Two Diseases, SFTS and CCHF, and Their Causative Agents

  • 238 Accesses

Abstract

Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) are caused by two distinct bunyaviruses and show some common characteristics. In this chapter, the author compares characteristics of the two diseases/viruses, hoping that the comparison will merit understanding of the viruses and developing of countermeasures against the diseases.

Keywords

  • Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome
  • Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever
  • Bunyavirus
  • Ecology
  • Symptom
  • Pathology
  • Animal model
