Abstract

Human listeriosis is a rare disease. It may be foodborne. Listeric infection during pregnancy may give a fatal fetal outcome, caused by transplacental passage of organisms from the maternal gastrointestinal tract. We describe a case of perinatal listeriosis which resulted in preterm stillbirth. Perinatal listeriosis should be considered when flue-like symptoms are presented during pregnancy. Early diagnosis and treatment may improve the outcome.
