Abstract

Recently, there came under my observation an infant aged 7 months, who had an acute glandular swelling, associated with fever, an enlarged spleen and secondary anemia. The secondary anemia and the blood picture made the diagnosis of an acute lymphatic leukemia very suggestive. Repeated blood studies and the subsequent course of the disease, however, showed that the condition was a sporadic case of infectious mononucleosis. The rarity of this disease in its sporadic form in infants warrants the reporting of this case. REPORT OF CASE History.—A boy, aged 7 months, was admitted to the hospital with a complaint of fever and swollen glands. The family history was nonessential. There was no history of any chronic or recent acute illness in the family. The child was born at full term after a normal delivery. At the age of 1 month, he had a mild case of impetigo, which cleared up
