A 47-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for community-acquired pneumonia complicated with acute renal failure. Legionella pneumophila serogroup type 1 was grown in BCYE (buffered charcoal yeast extract) agar for sputum culture. Although his respiratory illness responded to intravenous erythromycin therapy, renal failure worsened and necessitated hemodialysis. Renal biopsy showed profound tubulointerstitial nephritis. After initiation of steroid therapy his renal function improved and he was discharged thereafter. These findings suggest that in Legionnaires' disease with acute renal failure, tubulointerstitial nephritis should also be considered and steroid therapy may be an effective modality for the renal complication.<br>(Internal Medicine 39: 150-153, 2000)
