Legionella anisa, a Possible Indicator of Water Contamination by Legionella pneumophila

By Nathalie van der Mee-Marquet, Anne-Sophie Domelier, Laurence Arnault, Daniel Bloc, Patrice Laudat, Philippe Hartemann and Roland Quentin


Legionella anisa is one of the most frequent species of Legionella other than Legionella pneumophila in the environment and may be hospital acquired in rare cases. We found that L. anisa may mask water contamination by L. pneumophila, suggesting that there is a risk of L. pneumophila infection in immunocompromised patients if water is found to be contaminated with Legionella species other than L. pneumophila
