Abstract

In May 1998, a single case of nosocomial legionellosis was discovered in a 1000 bed hospital in Milan, which included departments serving immunocompromised and severely ill patients (transplant recipients, AIDS cases, patients receiving corticosteroids, etc.). This infection provided an opportunity to undertake a long term epidemiological and environmental survey. After 15 months of active surveillance, we have generated some suggestions for management of legionnaires’ disease acquired both in hospital and in the community.
