Abstract

Meningitis due to Listeria monocytogenes occurs in adults with an impaired immune defence mechanism and in patients with transplanted kidneys treated with immunosuppressive drugs. A patient who had undergone kidney transplantation eight years before developed Listeria meningitis with fever, but without meningeal irritation or other neurological signs. Complete recovery followed intravenous treatment with ampicillin and chloramphenicol.
