Naegleria fowleri infections are rare.
But the infection is very rare, and according to the CDC, there have been about 35 cases reported in the U.S.in the last decade.
CDC is assisting the Waco-McLennan County Public Health District on an investigation into a potential Naegleria fowleri exposure at an aquatic facility.
The amoeba infects people when it enters the body through the nose, causing Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis. Once the amoeba enters the nose, it travels to the brain where it causes PAM (which destroys brain tissue) and is usually fatal. The amoeba is commonly found in warm freshwater such as lakes, rivers, ponds and canals.
