Abstract

In France, the clinical distribution of Legionella species and serogroups does not correspond to their environmental distribution. Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 is more prevalent among clinical isolates (95.4%) than in the environment (28.2%), whereas L. anisa is more frequent in the environment (13.8%) than in the clinical setting (0.8%).
