  • Listeriosis

    […] lis·te·ria \ li-ˈstir-ē-ə \ : any of a genus ( Listeria ) of small, gram-positive , rod-shaped bacteria that do not form spores and have a tendency to grow in chains and that[merriam-webster.com] L monocytogenes is a facultative anaerobe Gram-positive rod. More than likely, gravidas presenting with the flu-like symptoms noted above indeed have a viral syndrome.[clinicaladvisor.com] Etiology Pathogen : Listeria monocytogenes ; a gram-positive , catalase-positive , rod-shaped , facultative intracellular, motile bacterium Route of transmission Contaminated[amboss.com]
