How is listeriosis diagnosed?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 04/16/2019

Listeriosis is usually diagnosed by bacterial culture from the blood, although it can also be diagnosed from amniotic fluid in pregnant women.

This is a laboratory test in which the sample is left to incubate for 48 hours on a culture plate to see if the bacteria Listeria Monocytogenes grows.
