41444-1Naegleria fowleri DNA [Presence] in Cerebral spinal fluid by NAA with probe detectionActive

Part Description

LP17151-9   Naegleria fowleri
Naegleria fowleri is a free-living amebae that can infect the central nervous system (CNS) and cause life-threatening disease. The route of entry and clinical course of infection varies with the type of ameba involved. N. fowleri live in warm, stagnant fresh water lakes and nonsterile water. The amebae is acquired by entering through the nasal sinuses, traveling along the olfactory nerve through the skull and into the central nervous system (CNS). N. fowleri causes rapidly progressive primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) and is typically fatal within several days of exposure. Most diagnoses are made after death due to the rarity of the condition.[PMID:22520593] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; Updated Answer list type from NORMATIVE to EXAMPLE because the Answers in the list (Positive, Negative) are only examples of possible answers and not an exclusive list
