Abstract

Mimivirus, the largest virus known to date, is an amebal pathogen-like Legionella sp. When Mimivirus was used as an antigen in a microimmunofluorescense assay, seroconversion was found in patients with both community- and hospital-acquired pneumonia. Mimivirus DNA was found in respiratory samples of a patient with hospital-acquired pneumonia.
