Symptoms and Diagnosis of Listeriosis

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that there are 1,591 cases of foodborne listeriosis, resulting in 255 deaths, in the U.S. each year.* Newborns, pregnant women, older adults, and those individuals with weakened immune systems are at greatest risk for developing listeriosis. Although less common, individuals not belonging to one of these high risk groups can also contract listeriosis.

Listeriosis symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. If the infection spreads to the central nervous system, symptoms may include headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions. Pregnant women may experience only mild, flu-like symptoms.

Culture and identification of the bacteria from samples of blood, spinal fluid (CSF), amniotic fluid, placenta, or other normally sterile tissue are necessary for diagnosis of Listeria infection. According to the CDC, stool cultures are of little assistance in diagnosing listeriosis.
