Abstract

We report the case of a 35-year-old woman who developed headache and psychosis and gradually became comatose within 3 weeks after a flu-like infection. MRI revealed bifrontal demyelination consistent with acute disseminating encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Two different cerebrospinal fluid samples were positively tested for Legionella cincinnatiensis bydirect sequencing of a PCR-amplified Legionella-specific fragment, This result made it possible to interpret the initial symptoms as Pontiac fever. We think it most likely that this is a case of ADEM followingthe very rare situation of a systemic infection with L. cincinnatiensis, A review of the literature on Legionella-associated encephalopathysuggests that some of these cases may also have had ADEM.
