      Grand Traverse man dies from contaminated steroid shot

      A Grand Traverse man has died as a result of contaminated steroid injections

      A Grand Traverse County man has died after receiving a contaminated steroid injection. The Michigan Department of Community Health confirmed the death tonight.

      Angela Minicuci, a spokeswoman for the department, told 7&4 News that it's unclear if the man had fungal meningitis. Because of HIPAA laws, information is limited at this time.

      The man was 73-years-old.

      Contaminated steroid injections are linked to the deaths of 13 Michigan residents and nearly 244 nationwide.
