Amebic CNS Infections Reporting

Home   Data   FAQs   Immunization   Investigation   Resources

Report any CNS infection, including Naegleria fowleri, Acanthamoeba spp. & Balamuthia mandrillaris within one week to DSHS at (512) 776-7676.

Several Texas laws (Tex. Health & Safety Code, Chapters 81, 84 and 87) require specific information regarding notifiable conditions be provided to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Health care providers, hospitals, laboratories, schools, and others are required to report patients who are suspected of having a notifiable condition (25 Tex. Admin. Code §97.2).

Reports from healthcare providers and laboratories may be submitted using the EPI-2 Initial Provider Disease Report Form. Health Departments may use the Investigation Form.
