Australian bat lyssavirus disease
a disease identified in 1996 in Australian fruit-eating flying foxes (Pteropus spp.) in which it is presumed endemic and in which it may cause encephalitis; the virus, of the genus Lyssavirus and the family Rhabdoviridae, has also caused fatal rabies-like illness in persons working closely with infected bats.
