What Is Legionnaires’ Disease?
Legionnaires’ disease is a type of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria. Typically, infected patients are exposed after breathing in mist from water that contains the bacterium. Those over age 50, smokers or those who have a chronic lung disease or weakened immune system are much more likely to contract Legionnaires’ disease.
In some cases, Legionnaires’ disease can lead to fatal complications such as respiratory failure, kidney failure, or septic shock. Symptoms usually become present within 2-14 days of exposure and may include:
- High fever
- Shortness of breath
- Muscle aches
- Chronic pain
- Loss of appetite
- Chest pain
