Message Subject 5 dead after outbreak of fungal meningitis tied to injections, UPDATE, 140 Texans
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
It's an outbreak we're seeing in several neighboring states. People are getting sick with fungal meningitis after receiving a very common and popular pain treatment - steroid injections. Those are most commonly used for back pain

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.

Packaged in Massachusetts and sent to clinics in more than 20 states, the back injection has infected patients in six states, some neighboring Kentucky. The states are - Tennessee, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, and Florida.

The New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts has recalled more than 17,000 of the vials believed to be contaminated.
