Abstract:

An attempt was made to collect brain samples without opening the skull to diagnose rabies. Brain samples were collected using AI sheath through the Occipital Foramen Route (OFR) and Retro Orbital Route (ROR) and subjected to fluorescent antibody test (FAT) and staining for Negribodies. Results by these methods showed equal sensitive on comparison with the classical method. This study suggests that the OFR and ROR were suitable to collect brain specimens in field where a laboratory structure with biosafety facility is not available.


Keywords: Evaluation, Rabies diagnosis, Brain sampling, OFR and ROR.
