Dear Colleagues and Interested Citizens,
As 2012 begins, I would like to send best wishes for a happy, productive, and safe New Year to the medical community on behalf of the members of the Florida Board of Medicine.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is investigating an ongoing outbreak of fungal endophthalmitis. While an initial notification had linked this to Brilliant Blue G (BBG), apparently from a single source (Franck's Pharmacy), there now appear to be cases unrelated to BBG. The CDC is requesting the Academy's assistance in identifying possible cases of infection.
