Texas health officials have confirmed a Central Texas woman is being treated for meningitis symptoms after receiving a steroid injection produced by the New England Compounding Center.
The woman is being treated with antifungal drugs. The patient's identity is not being released.
The recalled drug is widely distributed steroid medication used to treat back pain and is administered by injection. The New England Compounding Center has voluntarily closed. All of its products have been recalled.
Harris Methodist Southlake Hospital and Dallas Back Pain Management are the two facilities in Texas which injected the drugs into patients. All 131 patients have been contacted by the two health care providers.
