Baby Born To Rabies Mom

Issue

The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases is reporting on the case of a pregnant woman, who gave birth to a healthy baby, but was infected with the rabies virus after a fatal dog bite.

The unbelievable story occurred a couple of years ago, but was just reported. The woman's rabies reportedly appeared in labor and she died after pregnancy. Her baby and husband did not develop this deadly disease.
