Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

 Patients with CCHF, especially children, hematuria, proteinuria, oliguria and azotemia could have been found by urinalysis. Moreover, because of the fact that proteinuria and urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (uNGAL) levels could increase in children with CCHF; thus, monitoring of renal involvement related to CCHF by measurement of urine total protein and uNGAL is recommended.
