Specializes in Pediatrics

Listeriosis is a serious disease for humans; the two main clinical manifestations are sepsis and meningitis. Meningitis is often complicated by encephalitis. Even so you did not mention any symptoms suggest meningitis or sepsis, i suggest you see your dr. Soon for your abdominal pain.
