An 18-year-old from Michigan died Monday of complications from a heart condition, according to her family.
Rachael D. Campbell, who was born with a rare form of genetic heart disease, died of complications of the condition, her family said in a statement Monday.
The cause was complications from the chipped tooth she got last week, said her father, Chris Campbell, in an email to the Detroit Free Press.
The family said Campbell had suffered from a rare genetic condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
He has lived in the United States since he was a child.
Dana Miller, a spokeswoman for the National Institutes of Health, said the agency was aware of Campbell’s condition and was following up on her case.
Miller said that Campbell’s family had not yet received any treatment for her condition.
