Abstract:
Legionella species is a common cause of community-acquired pneumonia. However disease due to L. pneumophila serogroup 13 is rare and has not previously been reported in Ireland. It may not be detected by routine Legionella antigen and antibody kits. Due to these limitations, early culture should be considered when legionellosis is suspected. The potential therapeutic benefit of quinolones in the management of this disease is also illustrated.
