What is Leigonella?

Legionella is a pathogenic Gram negative bacterium. It is the causative agent of legionellosis including Legionnaires' disease which is a potentiall fatal form of pneumonia which can affect anybody, but which principally affects those who are susceptible because of age, illness, immunosuppression, smoking etc. Legionella bacteria can also cause less serious illness which are not fatal or permanently debilitating.  

 Legionella is common with at least 50 species and 70 serogroups identified and are often encountered in environmental sources which may eventually colonise manufactured water systems and be found in cooling tower systems, hot and cold water systems and other plant which use or store water.
