Legionella pneumophila is a cause of both community- and hospital-acquired pneumonia and might cause high morbidity and mortality. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment with appropriate antibiotics is crucial. Many clinical and laboratory abnormalities can be observed in the course of Legionella pneumonia. In this study, we aimed to present simultaneously increased serum ferritin and myoglobin level in a legionella case with reference to the relevant literature.
