General Legionellosis / Legionnairesí Disease Information
Legionellosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Legionella pheumophila.

There are two forms of legionellosis:

  • Legionnaireís disease, a serious infection that includes pneumonia
  • Pontiac fever, a milder form of Legionnaireís disease.
    Legionnaireís disease was so named following an outbreak of the pneumonia at a convention at the American Legion in Philadelphia in 1976. An estimated 8,000 to 18,000 Americans suffer from Legionnairesí disease annually. The disease progresses rapidly and can be very dangerous. It usually strikes in single, isolated cases. Approximately 5% to 30% of those stricken with Legionnaireís disease die.

    Possible Causes of Legionellosis / Legionnairesí Disease
    Legionnaireís disease is caused by a bacteria called Legionella pheumophila. People usually catch legionellosis by inhaling water particles from cooling towers, showers whirlpools and or water sources contaminated with the bacteria. Legionnairesí disease and Pontiac fever can strike at any age, but they most commonly affect those in middle-age and the elderly. Those who smoke or suffer from chronic lung disorders are more susceptible to developing legionellosis.

    Possible Symptoms of Legionellosis / Legionnairesí Disease
    Signs of Legionnairesí disease include chills, fatigue, aching muscles, cough, moderate fever and other flu-like symptoms. As the condition progresses, high fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and shortness of breath may develop. The cough begins as a dry, non-productive cough, then transitions into wet cough that produces gray or blood-streaked sputum.

    Symptoms of Pontiac fever experience fever and muscle aches but no signs of pneumonia. Pontiac fever runs its course in 2 to 4 days.

    Possible Lifestyle Changes for Legionellosis / Legionnairesí Disease
    Eat a diet made up of 75% raw foods and lightly steamed vegetables. Avoid alcohol, dairy products, fried foods, sugar and tobacco. Keep warm and do not get chilled. Use a heating pad on the chest to ease pain. Remember that it takes time to recover from Legionnairesí disease, so get plenty of rest and do not push resuming regular activities.
