LONDON — Actress Lindsay Lohan has a rare, incurable virus she picked up during a recent trip to Bora Bora, according to TMZ.

The website reports Lohan was hospitalized in London after contracting Chikungunya. It’s a mosquito-borne virus that causes fever, joint pain and fatigue.

TMZ reported that Lohan vacationed in Bora Bora over the holidays, then flew to Los Angeles to shoot a commercial that may run during the Super Bowl, and then returned to London.

That’s when she reportedly became so sick she couldn’t walk.

TMZ says Lohan was released from the hospital on Wednesday after her fever broke.

Lohan reportedly still has intense joint pain and doctors referred her to a specialist.
