Three cases of paralytic rabies are reported. The important presenting symptoms were generalized muscle weakness and hyporeflexia without history of dog bites.  Clinical progression resembling myelitis with low sugar profile in CSF is presented in one case.  Percussion myoedema and fasciculation are useful physical signs for differentiation the paralytic rabies from Guillain-Barre-Syndrome and ascending myelitis.
