Abstract

A case of life-threatening Chlamydia TWAR pneumonia complicated by encephalitis in a young, previously healthy adult is described. The patient presented with full blown adult respiratory distress syndrome and required prolonged ventilatory support and rigorous antibiotic and supportive care. He recovered fully without any neurologic sequelae. Chlamydia pneumoniae pneumonia should be included in the differential diagnosis of the severe community acquired pneumonia, because if properly sought and adequately treated, may have an excellent outcome.
