Introduction:
Rabies is a viral disease, caused by
rhabdovirus ,
 which infects the central nervous tissue and salivary gland. Rabies remains one of the most common viral causes of mortality in the developing world.
 
Exposure to the virus has profound medical and economic implications throughout the world, with as many as 4 million people annually receiving postexposure treatment (PET) to prevent rabies.
 
Rabies,
 
Latin for “madness,” derives from
rabere,
 to rave, and is related to the Sanskrit word for violence,
rabhas
. The Greek term for rabies,
lyssa,
 also means madness, and it provides the genus name (Lyssavirus).
