Rabies risks and causes

Differential Diagnosis

If you’re being evaluated for a possible case of rabies, the following conditions may also be considered during your diagnosis:

  • atropine poisoning
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • other infectious causes of encephalitis
  • psychosis
  • tetanus

Your healthcare provider will use diagnostic criteria for each of these to either confirm or rule out a diagnosis.
