Articles stressing certain rare and preternatural manifestations of infectious mononucleosis continue to occupy a prominent place in the literature of this disease. It is noteworthy that atypical clinical features have not been the only atypical findings in many of these cases. I have been puzzled by cases that have failed to show a lymphocytosis. For example, although heterophil tests were positive in a case recently reported in a four year old girl with severe central nervous system involvement, other findings included a neutrophilia of 93%, no abnormal at any time during the illness, and none of the usual clinical manifestations
