Case: A girl with hydrophobia

A 2 year old girl presented with agitation, hydrophobia and airophobia to a public hospital in our locality. Our post graduate students on their weekly scheduled visit to the hospital witnessed the child. The child or parents couldn't recollect any incident of dog bite or any other bite to the child.

The patient has no fever or no other neurological sign. The typical presence of hydrophobia and airophobia indicates the development of Rabies in the child. She was refered to the Infectious Disease Hospital for quarantine and treatment.
