Brad Pitt, who checked himself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Monday night complaining of flu-like symptoms, has been diagnosed with a mild case of viral meningitis. He was released from the hospital Wednesday.

Pitt was recently in Ethiopia with actress Angelina Jolie as she picked up her newly adopted baby girl. His publicist did not say if he may have contracted the illness there.
