A 12-year-old girl presented with fever, sore throat, and right cervical lymphadenopathy. Peripheral blood examination revealed mild lymphocytosis. Serologic tests for antibodies against toxoplasma, cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex were all negative. A monospot test was also negative. The patient was treated with antibiotics without improvement of clinical symptoms. A lymph node biopsy was performed (Figs. 67.1 and 67.2).
