Pontiac fever


So, I was doing some research on a patient of mine who has a quite rare illness. I came across something else in my studies.  There is actually an illness called "Pontiac Fever"! It is a flu-like condition caused by Legionella bacteria. You get it by breathing in steam or water droplets from water contaminated by this bacteria, like in hot tubs, humidifiers, water fountains etc. It can cause sore throats, fevers, chills, muscle pain, headaches, dizziness, upset stomach, diarrhea. It usually resolves itself without treatment, but can be treated with antibiotics. I guess it sounds better than Chevrolitis or Chrysleroma.......

Usually resolves itself by buying another one. Lol

Much better way than taking an antibiotic; that's for sure!
