Abstract :

Rabies is a viral zoonotic disease that proves highly fatal in its neurological form. However, a few cases have also been reported regarding recovery but with brain disabilities. As the disease progresses, signs and symptoms also get crucial (from non-specific to highly specific). Numerous transmission routes can be seen but dog bite is the most common among all. Multiple preventive measures can be used to lower the impact of disease but all are effective up to certain limits. Moreover, effective treatment of this disease is still under study due to multiple challenges such as lack of resources and pathogenic mechanisms.
