Naegleria fowleri - commonly referred to as the 'brain-eating amoeba' - is a microscopic amoeba, which is a single-celled living organism.
It can cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amoebic 

meningoencephalitis (PAM).

The only way to prevent a Naegleria fowleri infection is not to participate in freshwater-related activities. You may reduce your risk by:
- Limiting the amount of water going up your nose. Hold your nose shut, use nose clips, or keep your head above water when taking part in warm freshwater-related activities.
- Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels.
- Avoid digging in, or stirring up, the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas
