INFECTIOUS mononucleosis is a disease with protean symptomatology, varied, atypical, and complicated in its course; the signs and symptoms may not be suggestive and the diagnosis is sometimes reached only incidentally and late. We herewith present a case with such an unusual sequence of events.

Report of a Case  A 63-year-old man was admitted to surgical department C on May 25, 1965, because of pain in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen, of three days' duration, accompanied by nausea and constipation.In 1926, a left nephrectomy had been performed because of nephrolithiasis with nonfunctioning kidney. Since 1937 he had been suffering from epigastric pain attributed to hypertrophic gastritis; since 1953, from intermittent claudication of both legs; and since May 1964, from attacks of precordial pain lasting five to ten minutes; serial electrocardiograms, however, were normal. Blood pressure readings of 200/100 to 110 mm Hg were found on many occasions.
