Listeria species are Gram-positive bacilli, present in food and in the enviroment (soil, water).Most of them are fortunately low-virulent, so there is no risk for healthy people. However, inspecial circumstances, they can be pathogenic, in immunocompromized individuals. Septicaemiain pregnancy is not dangerous for women, but for the foetus, so delayed diagnosis will lead tospontaneous abortion, intrauterine death or eventually to premature labour.We report in our paper case of Listeria septicaemia in a pregnant woman in the third trimester ofthe pregnancy. Thanks to early diagnosis and subsequent causal antibiotic treatment, we wereable to prevent the development of congenital infection and a healthy baby was born.
