Abstract

We describe 13 patients with legionnaires' disease in Nottingham, all presenting with lobar pneumonia. Six patients required artificial ventilation and 2 died. No common source of infection has yet been identified, but the disease appears to be prevalent and possibly endemic in this city. © 1979.
