To respond to an unprecedented outbreak of central nervous system, joint and osseous mold infections that have been observed, beginning in August of 2012, among hundreds of patients who received contaminated methylprednisolone injections. This project will collect long-term follow-up data on diagnosis and appropriate treatment of fungal meningitis and other fungal infections associated with this outbreak in order to fully understand and track the burden of these infections.
