Caption

Listeriosis. Light micrograph of a section through liver tissue in a case of listeriosis. This rare infection by the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria is usually due to food poisoning. The bacteria then spread throughout the body and damage nervous tissue (including the brain and spinal cord), the eyes, the heart, the lungs, joints, bones and the liver. In the liver, the bacteria generally cause inflammation (hepatitis). In pregnant women, the disease often causes miscarriage or stillbirth. Treatment is with antibiotic drugs. Magnification unknown.
