Abstract

Case: The case is presented including maternal history, clinical and laboratory findings leading to diagnosis, paraclinical monitoring of the infection, the established treatment and outcome of neonatal death. A review of national and international literature on infectious and epidemiology characteristics of L. monocytogenes infection, and its clinical presentation and implications during the gestational and the neonatal period is made. Discussion: neonatal listeriosis is a disease with high fatality whose epidemiology is not clearly described in the national and regional level which hinders the development of prevention strategies in high-risk groups. We suggest this infection becomes a notifiable event to allow the identification of risk factors, lethality, usual presentation and outcome of this infectious disease in Colombia.
