Researchers said the woman likely contracted the amoebas by using tap water to fill a neti pot, rather than using saline or sterile water. The organisms entered her brain after the water reached nerves in her upper nasal cavity.

An MRI of the Seattle woman???s brain in February 2018 shows severe hemorrhaging. ???It???s such an incredibly uncommon disease it was not on anyone???s radar that this initial nose sore would be related to her brain,??? said Keenan Piper a researcher from Swedish Medical Center.

When a 69-year-old Seattle woman underwent brain surgery earlier this year at Swedish Medical Center, her doctors were stumped.Last January, the woman was admitted to the hospital’s emergency department after suffering a seizure. Doctors took a CT scan of her brain to determine the cause, finding what they initially thought was a tumor. But an examination of tissue taken from her brain during surgery a day later showed she was up against a much deadlier attack, one that had been underway for about a year and was literally eating her alive.

The woman died a month later from the rare organisms that entered her brain after being injected into her nasal cavity by way of a neti pot, a teapot-shaped product used to rinse out the sinuses and nasal cavity, according to a case study recently published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

在正常情况下,自来水中不会有寄生虫及病原菌。许多老城区管道系统污染严重,自己家里要装过滤设备 -fuz- 给 fuz 发送悄悄话 fuz 的博客首页 fuz 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 12/06/2018 postreply 10:54:33
