The disease can then take two forms:

  1. With paralytic rabies (approximately 20% of cases), the patient’s muscles slowly become paralyzed (usually starting at the site of the bite). This is the less common form and ends in coma and death.
  2. With furious rabies (about 80% of cases), the patient exhibits the classic symptoms of rabies, such as
  • anxiety and confusion (The patient is often overly active.);
  • encephalitis, causing hallucinations, confusion, and coma;
  • hypersalivation;
  • hydrophobia (fear and avoidance of water);
  • difficulty swallowing.

Once the clinical signs of rabies occur, the disease is nearly always fatal.
