Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) is an emerging tick-borne disease caused by a novel bunyavirus. Although the increasing numbers of cases and deaths is of great concern, an effective treatment strategy for SFTS has not been established. We present the cases of two patients with rapidly progressing SFTS who were successfully treated with plasma exchange and ribavirin.
