Pitt has viral meningitis

 article about hospital

Brad Pitt has been released from hospital and is recovering at his home in Los Angeles, after being diagnosed with viral meningitis.

Pitt checked himself into LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday night, upon feeling unwell at an appearance at a motorcycle speedway event in California last weekend.

The 41-year-old actor has just returned from a trip to Africa with his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, which led medics to question whether his flu-like symptoms might be something more serious. He was later diagnosed with viral meningitis, an infection often transferred through mosquito bites, that causes an inflammation of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. 

As the illness is rarely fatal in people with strong immune systems, Pitt has been discharged from hospital to recuperate at home. His publicist says, "The actor is at home and doing well."
