Michigan (I-Newswire) October 26, 2012 - The Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. medical malpractice lawyers in Michigan recently created an infographic on the recent United States meningitis outbreak linked to steroid injections. The infographic was created to aid those victims who are currently suffering from meningitis due to the injection, as well as make others who have also received the injection aware of the symptoms of this disease, and how it spreads throughout the body. Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is a Southfield law firm that is actively investigating the legal rights of patients who have been injured or died due to the meningitis outbreak due to steroid injection.
The United States Steroid Injection Fungal Meningitis Outbreak infographic visually displays the most recent statistics of injury cases and deaths reported due to fungal meningitis linked to steroid injection throughout the U.S. (both an U.S. map and chart are used), a description of the disease, the signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis, as well as where the needle is injected into a patient who receives the medication.
Fungal meningitis can develop after a fungus spreads through the bloodstream from somewhere else in the body, as a result of the fungus being introduced directly into the central nervous system, or from an infected body site infection next to the central nervous system.
All infected patients received injection with preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate prepared by New England Compounding Center (NECC), located in Framingham, MA. The injections were shipped to 23 states and nearly 14,000 patients have been given this potentially tainted injection of pain medication.
257 cases of patients who suffer from the fungal infection linked to steroid injections has been reported thus far. 20 reports of death to a patient from fungal meningitis due to steroid injection in the U.S. have also been reported.
Tennessee has the highest amount of cases reported with 63, following the State of Michigan with 49 cases, and Virginia with 37 cases. Tennessee also has the highest numbers of deaths reported (8 deaths), with the State of Michigan to follow in the same sequence (4 deaths).
