Study group discussion: Legionella confusion

A few days back, we had a discussion on legionella.

Legionella affects three systems - Lungs, GIT (diarrhoea) and CNS (Altered sensorium, confusion, etc).

Why does it cause CNS symptoms?
The reason is because it causes hyponatremia.

Why does it cause hyponatremia?

Due to increase in ADH secretion.
