Abstract

The authors report on a newborn admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of Gaslini Institute for serious respiratory insufficiency who died on the third day of life because of a sepsis due to Listeria monocytogenes. The authors focus on the patient's history and clinical picture and on the histological evaluation of the lesions observed. The importance of infection in pregnancy and the possible severe consequences of listeriosis on the foetus are underlined, stressing the need for early diagnosis and adequate treatment.
