British supermodel Naomi Campbell has been admitted to hospital in Sao Paulo after flying to Brazil for treatment.
Ms Campbell, 37, is in Sirio-Libanes Hospital, where staff told reporters she was being seen by an infectious diseases specialist.
Her publicist told AP news agency the London-born model had had a small cyst removed and was now resting.
Her doctor, David Uip, said she was in hospital but did not elaborate, Sao Paulo's Folha newspaper said.
"She came to Brazil for a treatment. She's been here since Sunday," the newspaper quoted him as saying.
Ms Campbell is a frequent visitor to Brazil and earlier this month celebrated the carnival in the north-eastern city of Salvador.
Her publicist said: "Following the successful [cyst] procedure, she is now resting and is looking forward to getting back to work.
"She would like to thank the doctors who have kindly looked after her."
