Name: Taylor Ward GCH 412 Case-control Studies Problem Set 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. You may also get fungal meningitis after taking medications, including steroids such as prednisone that weakens the immune system. Fungal meningitis is not contagious. CDC is coordinating a multistate investigation of meningitis to determine if those with this form of meningitis received epidural steroid injections (medication injected into the spine). A total of 500 cases of possible meningitis were reported to the CDC in the month of September. Of those 500 cases, 227 were fungal meningitis; the remainder were bacterial or viral meningitis. Of the 227 cases of fungal meningitis, 152 people had received epidural steroid injections. Of those without fungal meningitis, 79 had received epidural steroid injections.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
