The rate of listeria abortion in Tehran was investigated. Abortion samples (200) were cold enriched at 4°C and subcultured on selective culture media containing acriflavin, nalidixic acid and potassium thiocyanate.

Antibody against L. mollocytogelles was obtained in 70.7% of sera but the bacteria was isolated from five samples only.
