LEGIONELLOSIS
Treatment


 
   Management

Therapy must start quickly. Delay in giving the appropriate antibiotic leads to higher mortality.

The treatment includes:

- Respiratory tract quinolones. Prescribed for patients above the age of 18.

- Macrolides. Used for all age groups.

- Antibiotics. There are several of them that can be prescribed but they must have a good intracellular penetration.

Complete recovery can take several weeks.
