    On September 2, 2004, results of laboratory testing performed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) support a diagnosis of Lassa fever in a 38-year-old man who died in a New Jersey hospital on August 28. The patient had returned to the United States on August 24 after reportedly spending 5 months in Liberia, where Lassa fever is endemic. This is the first report of a travel-related case of Lassa fever in the United States since 1989.
