The infectious disease caused by the food-borne bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. The disease typically involves septicemia, meningoencephalitis, or abortion/stillbirth. Mortality rates for the septicemia or meningeal forms may be very high. Human listeriosis is rare and usually occurs only in immunosupressed individuals or in the fetus/neonates.
Infection with Listeria monocytogenes usually found in vegetables, milk, cheese, meat, seafood.
an infectious disease of animals and humans (especially newborn or immunosuppressed persons) caused by the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes; in sheep and cattle the infection frequently involves the central nervous system and causes various neurological symptoms
A type of meningitis caused by Listeria monocytogenes that is threatening to those with impaired imm
Infection of animals and man with the gram-positive bacillus listeria monocytogenes; the protein manifestations include meningitis, lymphadenopathy, disseminated granulomus, respiratory symptoms, and ill-defined acute febrile illness, it can produce abortion and fetal or neonatal death.
A serious infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes, which has recently been recognized as an important public health problem in the United States. The disease affects primarily pregnant women, their fetuses, newborns, and adults with weakened immune systems. Listeria is killed by pasteurization and cooking; however, in certain ready-to-eat foods, such as hot dogs and deli meats, contamination may occur after cooking/manufacture but before packaging. Listeria monocytogenes can survive at refrigerated temperatures.
an infection caused by the bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes; the infection is commonly located within the gastrointestinal track, but it can be located elsewhere in the body.
A rare bacterial infection acquired by eating undercooked infected meat or from infected live animals; can be dangerous to newborns and the elderly.
A serious -- sometimes fatal -- bacterial disease [Listeria (L.monocytogenes)] that looks like severe encephalitis but with paralysis. This is considered an AIDS-defining condition in the United States.)
An important public health problem in N America involving infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. The disease affects primarily pregnant women, newborns, and anyone with immune compromise. See the entire definition of Listeriosis
An illness caused by bacteria found in certain foods including unpasteurized milk products, undercooked meats, fish, shellfish, poultry, deli meats, and unwashed vegetables. The symptoms of listeriosis are similar to those of the flu. The illness can be transmitted in utero to a baby and lead to serious complications.
Infection with one of the Listeria bacteria, which are capable of causing miscarriage, stillbirth, and premature birth.
Listeriosis is a bacterial infection caused by a gram-positive, motile bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes. Listeriosis is relatively rare and occurs primarily in newborn infants, elderly patients, and patients who are immunocompromised.
