Exserohilum & Fungal Meningitis Discussed in New Video
The IAQ Video Network releases another educational video about important environmental, health & safety (EH&S) issues.
Exserohilum is a type of mold commonly found in soil and on plants, especially grasses. It thrives in warm and humid climates and can cause root rot in some plants. It is a very rare cause of infection in people, but it has been known to cause several different types of infections, including infection in the skin or the cornea, which are typically due to skin or eye trauma. Exserohilum can also cause more invasive forms of infection in the sinuses, lungs, lining of the heart and bone. These infections are believed to occur more likely in people with a weakened immune system.
“Exserohilum rostratum has been identified as one of the predominant pathogens in the 2012 multistate outbreak of fungal meningitis and other fungal infections associated with contaminated steroid injections,”
This educational video was sponsored by a number of organizations and leading industry professionals that help to protect the public’s health. Sponsors include: EMSL Analytical, LA Testing, Mold Solutions & FastMoldRemoval.com, Clark Seif Clark, Zimmetry Environmental and Healthy Indoors magazine to name a few.
