Characterization of a Legionella anisa strain isolated from a patient with pneumonia.

Abstract

Legionella anisa, previously found only in environmental specimens, was isolated from a bronchial lavage specimen of an immunocompromised patient with pneumonia. Growth, physiologic, gas-liquid chromatographic, serologic, and DNA characteristics were consistent with those of the type strain of L. anisa, WA-316-C3 (ATCC 35292).
