The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Mexico Ministry of Health, and U.S. state and local health departments are responding to a multinational outbreak of fungal meningitis among patients who underwent surgical procedures under epidural anesthesia in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, Mexico, since January 1, 2023. To date, more than 200 U.S. citizens have been exposed to these procedures with three deaths resulting from this fungal meningitis outbreak.
During this COCA Call, presenters will provide epidemiological updates, give an in-depth description of the clinical course of patients treated in the United States, and discuss what clinicians need to know to evaluate and treat people under investigation and those with suspected and confirmed cases during this fungal meningitis outbreak.
Continuing Education (CE) will not be offered for this COCA Call.
