Listeria monocytogenes in a young patient with non Hodgkins lymphoma: case report

International Journal of Immunopathology and Pharmacology
D FioritiV Pietropaolo

Abstract

Listeria monocytogenes is an intracellular food-borne pathogen, widely distributed in the environment, which rarely causes clinical infection in healthy people, but may cause severe disease in immunocompromised patients. A case of listeriosis is certified in an immunocompromised patient, thus confirming this microorganism to be an opportunistic human pathogen.
