The seven genera were as follows: Drechslera, Colletotrichum, Exserohilum
, Alternaria, Bipolaris, Curvularia, and Fusarium.

Fungal meningitis transmitted through injections of methylprednisolone contaminated with Exserohilum
rostratum affected 753 persons and caused 61 deaths in the United States in 2012 (1).
Sun and colleagues, using high-throughput assays, screened approved drugs to identify potent effects against Exserohilum
rostratum infections .
Exophiala, Bipolaris, Curvularia, Lecythophora, Dactylaria, Phialophora, Exserohilum
, Alternaria, and Cladosporium are species of several genera of fungi that have been recognized as agents of phaeohyphomycosis [4, 5].
Materials and Methods Fungal Species Trichoderma harzianum JF419706, as a biocontrol agent, and the soil-borne fungal pathogens (Alternaria alternata, Exserohilum
rostratum, Fusarium oxysporum, Pythium ultimum, Macrophomina phaseolina and Rhizoctonia solani) were obtained during our previous work (Alamri et al., 2012).

Additionally, CSF specimens were negative when tested for Exserohilum
DNA (the predominant pathogen identified during the outbreak) by polymerase chain reaction.
