Because the case fatality rate (CFR) between Chinese and Korean patients with severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome is different, a comparison of the distribution of clinical manifestations shown at diagnosis in Chinese and Korean patients is needed. In contrast to Chinese patients between 2010 and 2013, Korean patients between 2013 and 2015 showed more cases of diarrhea (54.3% vs. 35.8%) and confusion (25.6% vs. 21.1%). These facts might delay the diagnosis in Korean patients and result in a higher CFR.
