Infectious Mononucleosis

Am J Dis Child. 1984;138(6):568. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1984.02140440052012.

The subject matter of this concise, multiauthored book includes the clinical manifestations and pathophysiology of illness attributed to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Since infectious mononucleosis is but one symptom complex attributed to this virus, and EBV is but one of several infectious agents that may induce this symptom complex, a more accurate title might have been "Human Illness Associated With the Epstein-Barr Virus."

The stated aim of the editor is to provide a reference source for practitioners and clinical and laboratory researchers. The monograph does bring topics of interest to researchers and clinicians under one cover. The goals are attained, in part, in that the clinician will gain from the review and researchers will have access to an overview of clinical observations.

Some chapters are inspired and, besides reporting current information, ask pointed and penetrating questions. Included in this category are chapters entitled "Epidemiology and Pathogenesis," "Neurologic Complications," "Atypical Presentations,"
