Rabies may be a viral disease that causes inflammation of the brain in humans and other mammals. Early symptoms can include fever and tingling at the location of exposure. These symptoms are followed by one or more of the subsequent symptoms: violent movements, uncontrolled excitement, fear of water, an inability to maneuver parts of the body, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Once symptoms appear, the result's nearly always death. The period of time between contracting the disease and therefore the start of symptoms is typically one to 3 months but can vary from but one week to quite one year. The time depends on the space the virus must follow peripheral nerves to succeed in the central systema nervosum.
