Strange noise on picture.

I hope someone can help me here. I was taking some shots yesterday of my friends kids at their home, and all of the pictures I took are fine, except one. I got strange bands of very what looks like grainy noise across one of the images, especially evident over the little boys hair and face. I have never seen this before, and I pray that it is not a sign that my sensor is about to pack-up. I was using ISO100, so it should not show any noticable noise. I have a 350d, and it is just short of 10,000 shots, so I would imagine that the 350d sensor should be good for more shots than that, or I at least hope it is.

For your info, if it matters, I was using flash and shooting against a blue curtain. I can't see how that would affect anything, but just so you know. The picture was taken in RAW, and the strange graininess is on the original RAW file. I also took other shots agsinst the same background, and they look fine.

Anyone seen this before ?

Thanks for any help.

the only time I ever had this was down to a faulty CF card

OK, thanks Scotty. I never even thought of that. I guess it means that the card could be on it's way out then, because the shots before and after were fine. I'll have a play later and take 20 or 30 shots in the house, and see if I get it again.
