Human rabies: clinical features, diagnosis, complications, and management.

A case of rabies was treated with intensive medical support. This led to a prolongation of life to 25 days. The neurologic progression of the disease was monitored clinically and with serial EEG. This prolonged course enabled us to witness and manage a wide variety of unusual complications including the adult respiratory distress syndrome, hypothermia, myocarditis, and diabetes insipidus. This report documents the clinical features, diagnostic problems, complications, and management.
