About the outbreak of fungal meningitis among patients who received injections containing contaminated preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate (MPA) from the New England Compounding Center (NECC).
In Virginia, this product was used only by Insight Imaging in Roanoke and New River Valley Surgery Center in Christiansburg. While the frequency of case reports has decreased over time, we continue to remain vigilant and respond to any reports of infection that may be associated with the outbreak.
