Four being treated for fungal meningitis in NH

Posted: Updated:

The New Hampshire health department says four people in the state are being treated for a rare form of fungal meningitis.

The disease is linked to steroid injections from a Massachusetts company and has killed 15 people around the country so far.

The New Hampshire patients -- three men and a woman -- are between the ages of 40 and 60 and are receiving treatment.

The department says they are expected to recover but warns the disease can be unpredictable.
