Abstract

Introduction: The fight against rabies can only be achieved by being suspicious, having the ability to identify probable cases, administering effective treatment, and following a multidisciplinary approach. We aimed to analyse suspected rabid bite cases in our region and to introduce the current situation as related to the disease, which remains a current issue in medical science and veterinary medicine.
