There has been interest in the last few years in the complications of infectious mononucleosis. Scattered reports of these complications have increased but, because examples are still quite unusual, they are accompanied by interest, uncertainty and even excitement at the bedside. It is the purpose of this paper, after a background introduction to infectious mononucleosis, to report an example of this illness accompanied by encephalitis and hemiplegia, and to review comprehensively the known existence and significance of the varied complications. A previous review was included in Bernstein's monograph on all phases of infectious mononucleosis in 1940.1
