  • E-Cigarette or Vaping Associated Lung Injury

    For more general information, see our Vaping and E-cigarettes page. 

    Overview

    National, state and local public health agencies are investigating a multi-state outbreak of e-cigarette or vaping associated lung injury (EVALI). CDC identified vitamin E acetate as a chemical of concern. But we don’t yet know enough to rule out other causes.

    EVALI is a diagnosis of exclusion because no specific test or marker currently exists. See CDC’s updated interim guidance for evaluating and caring for patients with suspected EVALI.

    Report suspected cases within 3 business days.

    Call (253) 798-6534 or use the E-cigarette or Vaping Associated Lung Injury (EVALI) Evaluation Worksheet.
