While the UK was declared free from rabies over 100 years ago, the disease remains a significant cause of death in many other countries around the world. It is hoped that eradication programmes in affected countries will succeed in the long term but, until then, prompt and thorough treatment can prevent people who have potentially been in contact with the rabies virus from developing this infection. This article provides a review of the disease and its prevention.
