South African model-actress Charlbi Dean, 32, died of ‘bacterial sepsis’

South African model and actress Charlbi Dean’s cause of death has been revealed after she died suddenly in August from an “unexpected sudden illness”.

The New York coroner determined that Dean – who was just 32 – died of bacterial sepsis, a spokesman confirmed in a statement to PEOPLE on Wednesday. The sepsis was a “complication of asplenia (the absence of a spleen)”.

Dean had her spleen removed over 10 years ago after she suffered “distant blunt trauma to her upper body” in a severe car accident in 2009.

According to the outlet, at one point Dean had contracted a bacterium called Capnocytophaga.

The bacterium, which comes in several forms, is “commonly found in the mouths of humans, dogs, and cats,” according to the CDC.

Those with compromised immune systems — like those who have had a spleen removal — are most at risk.

The bacteria “can enter the bloodstream, which can lead to infections in different parts of the body.”

This can lead to blood infections, endocarditis (inflammation of the lining of the heart), abscesses, and inflammation of the “eyes, face, lymph nodes, or meninges.”

Since the full autopsy was not disclosed, it remains unclear what led to Dean’s infection. The coroner ruled her death an accident.

Dean died in a New York hospital on August 29.
