A third year medical student has died from an "extraordinarily rare condition", fellow Bristol University students have been told.
She died on Friday October 13 in a hospital "away from Bristol".
A Bristol University spokesperson said: “We are extremely sorry to hear about the death of one of our third year students last week. Our thoughts and sympathies are with her family and friends at this very difficult time."
They confirmed her death had no connection to the recent case of a Bristol student with meningitis.
