This volume is dedicated to Legionnaires' disease - an important public health topic as it involves environmental and public issues, as far as its spread and prevention are concerned.

More than 10,000 patients are hospitalized every year with Legionnaires' disease in the United States alone. With an aging population, increasing number of transplants, increasing use of immunosuppressive medications, and compromised immunity due to multiorgan system disease, Legionnaires' disease is emerging as an important disease.
