The patient's identity is still unknown, but is now in isolation at a University Hospital in Uppsala. Test results were expected later on Friday.
The patient, who is now in isolation, was first admitted at a hospital in Enköping - about 50 miles (80km) from Stockholm - before being transferred to Uppsala. "This is still only a suspicion and other diseases are a clear possibility", the regional authority's statement said. The patient was eventually transferred to an infection clinic in Uppsala.
Uppsala chief medical officer confirmed the patient was vomiting blood, a symptom of the fatal disease.
The authorities said the hospital in Enkoping where the patient was first admitted had its emergency room shut down and the staff who treated the patient were "cared for". All major outbreaks have been in Africa, though isolated cases have been reported outside the continent.
