Objective: Neopterin is generated and released in increased amounts by macrophages upon activation by interferon-gamma during cellular immune response. In this study, we aimed to investigate serum neopterin levels in patients with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) and its clinical significance as a predictor factor of mortality.
