Rabies in man and animals has been discussed since centuries but still remains one of the neglected zoonotic diseases across the globe. Dogs being reservoir host, bite from an unknown dog and death of the bitten man or animal or of the dog that bit, within a span of ten days to three months, leave a suspicion of rabies especially in endemic areas like India. Though there are strict measures to control rabies by vaccination programmes, abundance of stray dogs makes it difficult to contain the disease. So, choosing the best diagnostic procedure is highly significant.
