The first vaping-related lung injury in New Hampshire has been identified.
State health officials say an adult from Sullivan County was hospitalized after vaping nicotine products.
The injury was consistent with the more than 1,000 cases of vaping-related injuries associated with e-cigarettes that have been reported across the nation in recent months.
The CDC is investigating that outbreak, which has resulted in at least 18 deaths.
State Epidemiologist Ben Chan says, so far, no specific cause has yet been identified.
