Woman Uses Neti Pot, Ends Up With Brain-Eating Amoeba Neti pot Seattle death: Doctors issue warning after brain infection ki

Tap water can contain tiny organisms that are safe to drink but could survive in nasal passages. Her doctor tells The Seattle Times there was "amoeba all over the place just eating brain cells".

The woman, who was 69 years old, died in February - roughly a month after doctors discovered the amoeba in her brain and about a year after she was initially infected.

However, an examination of tissue taken from her brain during surgery showed that her problem wasn't a tumor at all. "There's been about 200 cases worldwide", Dr. Cobbs said.

But how did the amoebas get in her brain in the first place? She was advised to try and flush out her sinuses and nasal cavity using water.

As reported by the Seattle Times, a woman was admitted to a local hospital's emergency department after suffering a seizure in January.

While this type of brain infection is rare, doctors are urging people to use sterile water any time they use a neti pot. It's a simple contraption that can be purchased at major retailers across the US.

Thankfully the star managed to turn her life around in 2012 after appearing on an episode of US TV show, Dr. Jael died in hospice at about 11AM on Tuesday after a brief battle with breast cancer , TMZ reported .

"It's extremely important to use sterile saline or sterile water", Dr. Cobbs said.

"If you do use a neti pot. you should be very aware that it has to be absolute sterile water or sterile saline", Cobbs said, according to Q13 News.

It is also acceptable to use a filter specifically created to trap potentially infectious organisms.

'I think she was using (tap) water that had been through a water filter and had been doing that for about a year previously'. A CT scan had revealed a 1.5-centimeter lesion and the 69-year-old had a history of cancer.

The unnamed woman died a month after the surgery from the infection called granulomatous amoebic encephalitis (GAE), according to a case study published this month in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases. That aligns with what the victim experienced, as her first likely symptom was a red sore on her nose that doctors kept misdiagnosing as the common skin condition rosacea. This amoeba was not even known 20 years ago hardly.

"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", Piper said.
