Even the experts admit that they've been baffled by the unfolding outbreak. Just last week, Minnesota reported its 13th confirmed case tied to the steroids — in a young woman who tested negative for meningitis. When doctors discovered that she had a bone infection instead, it was a reminder of what an elusive culprit they've been chasing.
The concern is that this is a condition that is complicated by the type of person who gets injections (already suffering from many of the same type of symptoms) and the unique outbreak. With over 1000 Minnesotans and many more nationally involved, hope is that the experts will soon get a handle on what can be done.
