A woman is undergoing hospital tests after returning from Ebola-hit West Africa.
The patient is being screened for infection at Edinburgh’s Western General Hospital.
She was admitted to the infectious diseases unit after reporting a raised temperature, NHS Lothian said.
Melanie Johnson, director of unscheduled care at the health board, said: “A patient who recently returned to Scotland from West Africa has been admitted to our Regional Infectious Diseases Unit (RIDU) at the Western General Hospital after they reported a raised temperature.
“As a precautionary measure, and in line with agreed procedures, the patient will be screened for possible infections and will be kept in isolation.
“We have robust systems in place to manage patients with suspected infectious diseases and follow agreed and tested national guidelines.”
