a bacterial species that may be acid-fast and causes Pittsburgh pneumonia, a variant of Legionnaires disease. Accounts for approximately 60% of Legionella pneumonias other than those caused by Legionella pneumophila.
An often intracellular bacteria, and frequent contaminant of water supplies, which may cause bronchopneumonia with consolidation and a fibrinopurulent exudate, fever, pleuritic pain and cough. It usually affects immunosuppressed children
