Michigan meningitis death toll rises to 13

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- Officials say the Michigan death toll from a national meningitis outbreak has risen to 13.  The fungal meningitis is linked to contaminated steroids produced by a Massachusetts pharmacy, and designed to treat back and neck pain.

The Michigan Department of Community Health says the state has had 67 total cases of the disease.  There have also been 91 reported cases of epidural abscesses and one stroke related to the injections.
