American dies of Mad Cow disease

Variant CJD is a rare, degenerative, fatal brain disorder that emerged in the United Kingdom in the mid-1990s and is thought to result primarily from consumption of cattle products contaminated with the BSE agent.

The Virginia Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed a vCJD case in a U.S. resident. This case occurred in a young adult who was born and raised in Saudi Arabia and has lived in the United States since late 2005; although since 2001, the patient occasionally stayed in the United States for up to 3 months and there was a shorter visit in 1989.
