Listeria monocytogen is gram-positive bacilli commonly isolated from environmental sources (water and food such as cheese, milk products, and undercooked meat). It can cause sporadic or epidemic infections and can be found in feces of 1-5% asymptomatic healthy adults. Immunosuppression, defective cell mediated immunity and pregnancies are considered high-risk conditions. Case mortality with central nervous system (CNS) infection is very high reaching 27% and many patients are left with neurological sequel. Though listeria meningitis has been described with the use of infliximab, its occurrence during pregnancy in ulcerative colitis is rare. We report a case of listeria meningitis in a woman who received infliximab during pregnancy.
