Steroid shot fungal infection

In 2012, the New England Compounding Center (NECC), a compounding pharmacy located in Framingham, Massachusetts, issued a massive recall of a compounded steroid product it distributed across the United States after receiving reports of numerous deaths linked to exposure to the steroid. Specifically, the pharmacy mixed a compound, Methylprednisolone Acetate, and distributed it to hundreds of pharmacies across the United States. It was ultimately discovered that the compound was contaminated with fungus and bacteria. When recipient pharmacies injected the compound into patients, often into their spine in an effort to relieve back pain, the fungus and bacteria were released into the body, causing a deadly condition of fungal meningitis.
