Abstract

Rabies has the highest case-fatality rate of all infectious diseases, with 50,000 cases occurring annually worldwide. In 2004 an unvaccinated adolescent survived after novel therapy. We report the management of a child with rabies. Although the implementation of this same therapeutic protocol was successful, the child died after 1 month of hospitalization.
