The paper presents a case of rabies with lethal outcome in a fourteen-year-old adolescent. The child did not undergo postexposure prevention of rabies after a cat's attack in connection with late addressing for medical care, just after occurrence of clinical symptoms of this disease. The child was not diagnosed "rabies" when was alive. Diagnosis was verified by detection of rabies virus RNA in autopsy material using polymerase chain reaction.
