Indiana reports 6th fungal meningitis death

INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana has a sixth death from an outbreak of fungal meningitis that’s been connected to injections of a recalled back pain medication.  

The Indiana State Department of Health said today that the latest reported death was an out-of-state resident. That death boosts to 56 the total number of cases of the rare disease in Indiana. The state health agency released no additional information on Indiana’s latest meningitis death.

State officials say clinics in six Indiana cities received tainted steroids traced to the New England Compounding Center. The Framingham, Mass., company is linked to a multistate outbreak that’s sickened 480 people and caused 33 deaths.  

The Indiana clinics that received tainted medication are located in South Bend, Elkhart, Columbus, Evansville, Fort Wayne and Terre Haute.
