Hearing loss in Legionaire's Disease

Has anyone seen a patient exhibiting hearing loss concommitant with the onset of Legionaire's Disease? I have a patient with previously evaluated mild hearing loss, who, upon contracting LD lost approximately 20-35 dB after 2KHz. A scan of the medical literature indicated that several cases had been reported, but the documentation was scanty, in reference to the audiological data accumulated. Has anyone else seen this complication?
Thanks,
Michael Ridenhour
