Abstract

The current review was established to display, for professional people, the tick species, tick geographical distribution, and the pathogens that are transmitted by these ticks, leading to the incidence of a wide range of diseases that have different levels of severity, from low to high fatal diseases, such as Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV). Ticks are important vectors that can transmit various pathogens, such as viruses, and basically those can cause neurologic and hemorrhagic health problems, such as Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever virus. The best way to protect and treat patients infected with tick-borne pathogens is to identify tick species and their feeding duration, and this will help understand the best treatment procedures.
