Abstract

A patient who had documented mononucleosis in June 1971 has been persistently symptomatic since that time, with easy fatigability and weight loss. He has also had a positive differential heterophile antibody test for mononucleosis for 14 months. Although no evidence for active Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection was discovered, the possibility of a chronic EBV infection is discussed. (JAMA 236:1492-1493, 1976).
