An outbreak of nosocomial Legionnaires' disease in a renal transplant unit in São Paulo, Brazil. Legionellosis Study Team.

From June 1989 to March 1990 there were eight cases of Legionnaires' disease caused by Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 in a renal transplant unit. There were seven cases of pneumonia and one case of pleural effusion. A study was conducted to identify the source of the outbreak. Legionella anisa was cultured from tap water. Twenty-seven staff members of the unit were serologically tested and antibody titres were positive in two. The probable source of infection was the potable water system. Control measures were hyperchlorination and heating of the water, after which there were no further cases during 5 months' follow up. We believe this is the first reported Legionnaires' disease outbreak in Latin America.
