rabies

   An infectious disease of the central nervous system in mammals, caused by a lyssavirus. Usually transferred by the bite of an infected animal, such as dogs, skunks, racoons, or rarely bats. Characterized by choking, convulsions, inability to swallow, etc. Different genetic strains are now recognized and can be identified by tests. Transfer of rabies from bats via aerosols to caged animals in a cave has been demonstrated, but has not been proven in humans [23].
