Abstract

The H5N1 infection was diagnosed in 12 patients in Turkey and confirmed by the WHO. Of these 12 patients so far, 8 have been published. In this case, we are presenting a case of pneumonia that developed following avian influenza infection in Eskisehir. Our case is one of the 4 patients who were not reported previously.
