The Minnesota Department of Health reports another case of fungal meningitis linked to a deadly nationwide outbreak. The new case brings the statewide total to 11.
Doctors are finding some patients are developing spine infections following treatment for the infection.
The most dangerous is an epidural abscess, a collection of pus between the outer covering of the brain and spinal cord and the bones of the skull or spine, which is not typical for fungal disease, CNN reports.
The Centers for Disease Control says there have been 30 deaths and more than 400 confirmed cases linked to tainted injectables from a Massachusetts pharmacy.
