Which disease is almost certainly fatal after symptoms have been shown?

dysentery
rabies
tetanus
malaria
Rabies vaccine and some­times rabies im­munoglob­u­lin are ef­fec­tive in pre­vent­ing disease if given before the start of symp­tom­s. However, only one person has survived a rabies in­fec­tion without vac­ci­na­tion - it was Jeanna Giese, a teenager from Wis­con­sin. Un­for­tu­nate­ly, the ex­per­i­men­tal treat­ment she had received didn't work for other pa­tients.
