Abstract

On February 8, 1996, a 26-year-old man died in a hospital in Naples, Florida, following progressive neurologic deterioration. Rabies had been clinically suspected on the day he was admitted (December 30, 1995) and was confirmed by CDC on January 10, 1996. This report summarizes the investigation of this case by The Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services, Collier County Public Health Unit, which indicted a dog in Mexico as the probable source of exposure.
