Abstract

Since it has been named as Listeria monocytogenes after its detection in 20th century, listeriosis has been known as a microorganism to parasitize and proliferate in cytoplasm of eucaryotic cell in many researches. As listeriosis has been occurred frequently in malignancy, leukemia, alcoholism, pregnant women, neonates and patients who has been administered immunosuppressants, a declined cell- mediated immune system of these patients has gotten the clinical attention as a common pattern. Infections by listeria have been rarely reported in end stage renal disease patients with a reduction in cell- medicated immune system. Through our experience, we'd like to report a meningitis by Listeria monocytogenes which has not been submitted in Korea yet.
