SC Patients Warned About Deadly Brain Disease
A South Carolina hospital is warning patients about a deadly brain disease that the Centers for Disease Control says only affects about 300 people in the U.S. each year.
FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo reports:
Eleven brain surgery patients, getting a warning from a Greenville, South Carolina hospital they might have been exposed to Creutzfeldt-Jakob, a rare brain disease that’s always fatal. A patient who had surgery in February later diagnosed with it, and although the surgical instruments used were sterilized, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends additional sterilization if the disease is suspected.
Creutzfeldt-Jakob can only be verified through an autopsy. Health officials say there’s never been a case involving transmission through surgical instruments.
