The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed the death toll from contaminated steroid injections continues to rise. The CDC has assembled a list of healthcare facilities which received the contaminated steroid injections.
Patients contracted the deadly meningitis after being injected in their spine with a preservative-free steroid called methylprednisolone acetate that was contaminated by a fungus. The steroid is used to treat pain and inflammation.
The New England Compounding Center, the Massachusetts-based pharmacy that made the contaminated injections, voluntarily recalled the contaminated substances.
Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding your brain and spinal cord, usually due to the spread of an infection.
In addition to typical meningitis symptoms like headache, fever, nausea and stiffness of the neck, people with fungal meningitis may also experience confusion, dizziness and discomfort from bright lights. According to the CDC, patients might just have one or two of these symptoms.
