Rabia Transmitida por Mordedura de Perro

In English

La rabia puede ser transmitida cuando el virus se introduce por una mordedura o por contacto con las membranas mucosas. Si el perro está rabioso o hay la sospecha de que está rabioso, o si la lesión se localiza en la cara o el cuello, la víctima usualmente recibe inmediatamente la vacuna contra la rabia y la inmunoglobina antirrábica humana (IAH o RIG en inglés). Si los registros veterinarios del perro están disponibles, y se conoce que el animal es sano, el perro puede estar en observación durante 10 días, y la vacuna se puede posponer. No obstante, si el animal presenta síntomas, usualmente a la víctima se le debe aplicar la RIG de inmediato. Si el animal no está disponible para su observación, la persona es usualmente vacunada contra la rabia.

Los primeros síntomas de rabia en los humanos son similares a la gripe, ya que incluyen dolores de cabeza, fiebre, debilidad, y malestar general. También puede existir una sensación de picazón o prurito en el área de la mordedura. En pocos días, el malestar suele progresar a síntomas de disfunción cerebral, ansiedad, confusión, agitación. A medida que la enfermedad progresa, la persona puede experimentar delirio, comportamiento anormal, alucinaciones, e insomnio. El período agudo de la enfermedad normalmente termina después de 2 a 10 días. Una vez que la persona empieza a mostrar signos de la enfermedad, es raro que sobreviva. Hasta la fecha, menos de 10 casos documentados de supervivencia humana por rabia clínica se han reportado, y sólo dos no tuvieron una historia de profilaxis pre o post exposición.

Overall, a very good trusted experience. Natig M.

I have dealt with Sofia Zneimer since 2009. She is a great lawyer and has helped me tremendously in navigating the process of green card. She is a great resource to have by your side. She is easy to reach. She responds very quickly, which was very important for me. If she can’t answer the question the same day, she does let you know that she is working on it. I would have no hesitation in recruiting her. Hemant S.
