OBJECTIVE: to describe the characteristics of human anti-rabies treatment notifications in Garanhuns, Pernambuco, Brazil, 2007-2010. METHODS: descriptive study using data from 1428 human anti-rabies medical record sheld on the Notifiable Diseases Information System. RESULTS: the canine species accounted for the highest number of notifications(67.5%), in healthy conditions (58.3%), causing single injuries (52.3%) to the hands/feet (38.2%) considered to be severe in 77.1 % of cases. A higherfrequency of adequate procedures was observed regarding serious injuries (69.4%), whereas inadequate procedures were revealed regarding minor injuries and indirect contact in most cases and in all years. CONCLUSION: limitations still exist in reporting form completion and the establishment of adequate procedures in human rabies prophylactic treatment, although gradual improvement was observed in them during the study period.
