Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is an acute viral hemorrhagic fever. The clinical course and outcome of the CCHF infection are different in humans. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a family of pathogen recognition receptors. TLR8 and TLR9 contribute to the recognition of viruses. We investigated frequency of TLR8 Met1Val, TLR8 -129C/G, TLR9 -1486T/C and TLR9 2458G/A polymorphisms in CCHF patients and healthy controls. Our study was conducted between June 1 and August 31, 2007 in Cumhuriyet University Hospital, Turkey. TLR genotypes were detected using the PCR-RFLP assay in 85 CCHF patients and 171 healthy controls. We found that heterozygous plus homozygous mutant genotypes frequency for TLR8 Met1Val and for TLR9 -1486T/C were significantly higher in CCHF patients than controls (p = 0.038 and p = 0.009, respectively). The frequency of TLR8 -129G/G genotype in the fatal CCHF patients was significantly higher than that of the non-fatal patients (p = 0.026). The frequency of TLR9 -1486C/C genotype was significantly higher in fatal CCHF patients than in healthy controls (p = 0.009) and in patients with severe disease compared to non-severe disease (p = 0.044). Our findings suggest that TLR8 Met1Val, TLR8 -129C/G, and TLR9 -1486T/C polymorphisms are important on clinical course of CCHF disease.
