Until now the only case of bat rabies in Hungary was diagnosed in 1999. The infected Serotine bat (Eptesicus serotinus) showed classical CNS signs: lying on his back, disturbance of the swallowing reflex, missing the physiologic photophoby and agressivity could be observed, and it died 14 days after finding. The laboratory examinations confirmed the presence of a rabies-related virus distinct from the European sylvatic rabies virus. Examinations with monoclonal antibodies against European Bat Lyssaviruses (EBLV-1 and EBLV-2) were not carried out.
