The fungal meningitis outbreak in 2012, which involved the New England Compounding Center, affected hundreds of people throughout the United States. While the New England Compounding Center has since closed its doors, this is not the end of the deadly infection.
A pharmacy in Tennessee is currently being investigated for a multi-state outbreak and for allegedly providing tainted steroid medications to patients. While there have not been any deaths related to this latest outbreak, people have complained about localized infections and skin abscesses. Unfortunately, we know that from the fall 2012 outbreak, fungal meningitis can be deadly. Therefore, if you have received a steroid injection and you are experiencing the symptoms of fungal meningitis, call the South Dakota personal injury attorneys at Zimmer, Duncan, and Cole, LLP right away. You may have a case.
What can happen if you had a steroid injection and then became sick? Are there any treatment options? Thankfully, yes. First, a doctor will perform a series of lab tests to determine if you have fungal meningitis. If so, treatment will include a long-term course of high dose anti-fungal medications. Depending on the severity of your symptoms, these medications may be given through an IV.
Fungal meningitis is not something you should wait on to see if it goes away. The infection can be deadly if you don’t receive treatment.
