WENATCHEE — A patient was diagnosed in a Chelan County hospital with wound botulism, a paralyzing toxic reaction believed to derive from injecting tainted heroin.

The health district gave notice of the health case Thursday to local health providers and police, in case more such poisonings emerge, Small said.
