[quote:Anonymous Coward 6206126:MV8yMDA1ODk5XzMzNzczNTcxXzlERjlGM0RG] We have a case in Kentucky now but they are saying the lady didnt have the shots.Since its the same type wonder how she contacted it. Kentucky woman diagnosed with Fungal Meningitis LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - What started as a bad headache one month ago, led to something much more serious for a young Kentucky woman. It wasn't until her daughter suffered a stroke did doctors refer her to UK Hospital. Where on the first day, doctors tested, then diagnosed her with Fungal Meningitis. "They have done a marvelous job here, but sadly, they said the damage was already done," she said. "They told me to be hopeful, but it's unlikely my daughter will pull through." According to the Center for Disease Control [u]Fungal Meningitis is not transmitted from person to person[/u]. People at risk acquire the infection usually by inhaling fungal spores from the environment. [u]It is found primarily in soil or bird/bat droppings in the Midwestern United States, although it can be seen in other places[/u]. People with certain medical conditions like diabetes, cancer, or HIV are at higher risk of infection. [b][u]WYMT wants our viewers to know (Tabatha's) case is not related to the Fungal Meningitis scare stemming from steroid shots in neighboring states.[/u][/b] http://www.wkyt.com/wymt/home/headlines/Kentucky-woman-Fungal-Meningitis-172920031.html [/quote]
A dozen people have been sickened and two have died after an outbreak of fungal meningitis tied to injections given at outpatient surgical centers in Tennessee and North Carolina, health officials said. At least 737 people who received lumbar epidural steroid injections between July 30 and Sept. 20 have been notified of the cluster of rare aspergillus meningitis infections

So far, five people have died in this outbreak. Thirty are ill.
Kentucky, right now, is lucky enough not to have any cases in the state. But from what WKYT is learning, the company that made the medications is licensed in all 50 states. There is a possibility we could soon find out about more infections.
