The Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announce the recent confirmation of a case of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) in a Virginia resident. There is no evidence to suggest that this case of vCJD was caused by anything the patient was exposed to while residing in the U.S. or that this situation represents a public health threat to any U.S. resident. 

For more information on vCJD, visit CDC’s Web site at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/vcjd/other/vCJD_112906.htm.
