Aim. Was to assess the current status and peculiarities of the incidence of listeriosis in Russia and in Moscow. Materials and Methods. In the work, the data of official statistical reports were used, a retrospective epidemiological analysis was conducted using MS Excel statistical methods and tools. Results. The incidence of listeriosis in the country continues to be recorded predominantly among the adult population (75.78 and 82.59% in Russia and Moscow, respectively). An increase in the share of severe and moderate forms of listeriosis (47.3 and 34.8%) has been observed. Especially alarming are cases of listeriosis in pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals, who are high-risk people. It is also necessary to take into account the role that listeriosis nowadays plays in the genesis of TORCH syndrome. Conclusion. Epidemiological surveillance of listeriosis remains an actual problem for Russia, especially in megapolis conditions. Recently, increase in the incidence of severe forms of listeriosis has been noted in Moscow. Peculiarities of Moscow, as of a megapolis, reflect the general picture of the incidence of listeriosis in Russia. The higher incidence rate in this area can be attributed to high potentials of laboratory diagnostics in this territory.
