Legionella bozemanii is known to cause pneumonia often in immunocompromised hosts. To our knowledge, we describe the first three cases of L. bozemanii pneumonia in patients with AIDS. At the time of presentation, these patients had varied histories, physical findings, and radiological findings. All three patients had a uniformly excellent response to treatment despite receiving different antibiotic regimens. The cases illustrate the need for thorough diagnostic workups and prompt institution of antibiotic therapy when clinical suspicion for L. bozemanii infection is high.
