Rabies virus-specific antibodies in multiple serum samples collected May 3 through June 9 were detected by IFA at VRDL
Multiple blood, urine, and sputum cultures were unrevealing; rapid antigen test was positive for influenza A, with subsequent confirmation at the CDPH VRDL for novel influenza A (H1).
Although rapid antigen test results were positive in 67% of tested cases in this series, anecdotal reports from other cases confirmed at CDPH VRDL, tested mostly in the outpatient setting, suggest that false positive and negative results are common.

Rabies virus-specific antibody was detected at VRDL
by indirect immunofluorescent antibody test in the serum samples from March 30 and 31.
However, rabies was diagnosed by the VRDL
on September 20 based on rising rabies antibody titers of <1:8 to 1:256 by IIF in serum samples collected on September 13 and September 19, respectively.
Antemortem tests for other causes of encephalitis were negative, and postmortem DFA tests on brain samples were positive for rabies antigen in the Fresno County Public Health Laboratory, the VRDL
, and CDC.
