Write-up: Pt was bitten by a stray dog. She received the rabies series of shots. Eight days after 4th dose pt was admitted to the hospital with a history of weakness of the right leg which progressed to left leg in 2 days, with episodes of seizures, weakness of upper limb, and respiratory paralysis. Pt had ascending paralysis and was put on a ventilator. Pt became comatose and died on March 25, 2000. It was determined that the rabies series was given incorrectly so the causality was attributed to rabies infection and not to the actual rabies vax.
