In brief: Meningoencephalitis

Amoebic meningoencephalitis is extremely rare (fewer than 10 cases in the US in the past decade).
The disease is contracted through the nasal sinuses and attacks the olfactory tracts. Treatment begins with broad spectrum intravenous antibiotics including anti-fungal agents. See an infectious disease expert.
