USA: Maryland man died of rabies from transplant


 (CNN) — A Maryland man recently died of rabies that he contracted from a tainted kidney he received in a transplant operation a year and a half ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.


Health care teams are now giving anti-rabies shots to three other patients who received organs from the same donor as the patient, the CDC said.
The Maryland man and three other people — in Florida, Georgia and Illinois — received organs from a person who died in Florida in 2011.
Doctors knew the donor had encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain, when they harvested the organs. However, they didn’t know rabies was the cause.
