11/456. Syngeneic blood stem cell transplantation for infectious mononucleosis-related aplastic anaemia.

    A 17-year-old girl developed severe aplastic anaemia following an episode of infectious mononucleosis. Her identical twin sister underwent mobilization with filgrastim and subsequent leukapheresis for blood stem cell collection. The cells were freshly infused without prior immunosuppression. The patient became transfusion-independent and achieved a trilineage complete haematological response. Her engraftment lasted 6 months, but subsequently she relapsed with pancytopenia. The patient then received a second infusion of syngeneic blood stem cells, preceded by conditioning with cyclophosphamide and antithymocyte globulin. This led to durable trilineage haematological recovery still ongoing at 16 months after her second transplant.

12/456. infectious mononucleosis.

    infectious mononucleosis is a unique disease in its hematologic aspects; it is different from the frequently occurring acute microbial diseases in that it affects primarily the reticuloendothelial system; and it is interesting serologically because of the heterophil antibody reaction, as well as the multiplicity of antibodies which may be produced. The diagnosis should be suspected clinically before hematology is reported - by remembering the prototypes. In fact, a patient between 16 and 25 years old complains of sore throat and fever is more likely to have infectious mononucleosis than another disease; and if - in addition - he is jaundiced, a diagnosis of infectious mononucleosis is almost certain. Finally, a negative result of treatment with corticosteroid has the diagnostic significance mentioned above. Positive effect of treatment has no diagnostic significance.

13/456. An infectious mononucleosis-like syndrome induced by minocycline: a third pattern of adverse drug reaction.

    A 22-year-old black man developed fever, chills, fatigue, night sweats, tender lymphadenopathy, and a generalized, pruritic, macular eruption 3 weeks after starting minocycline therapy for acne. His illness was also characterized by a palpable spleen tip, marked lower extremity and scrotal edema, and generalized lymphadenopathy. The patient had leukocytosis with a large percentage of atypical lymphocytes on peripheral smear and liver dysfunction. Titers for Epstein-Barr virus, hepatitis b, toxoplasmosis; and cytomegalovirus were all negative. Human immunodeficiency virus-1 viral load and antibodies were also negative. Marked improvement was noted after the discontinuation of minocycline and the use of systemic corticosteroids. With the negative viral serologies, the clinical picture was most consistent with an infectious mononucleosis-like syndrome produced by the minocycline ingestion.

14/456. A case of severe chronic active infection with Epstein-Barr virus: immunologic deficiencies associated with a lytic virus strain.

    infectious mononucleosis (IM) is a self-limiting, lymphoproliferative disease induced by primary infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). infection with EBV leads in general to lifelong asymptomatic persistence of the virus. We report the case of a woman who acquired IM at the age of 15 years and then suffered from recurrent high fever, fatigue, and signs of immunologic disorder for more than 12 years until she died of liver failure. In an attempt to describe and to define the course of chronic active infection with EBV, we performed immunologic and molecular assays that demonstrated lytic replication of EBV in the B and T cells of the peripheral blood. In addition to signs of humoral and cellular immune deficiency, we detected an EBV strain with an impaired capability to immortalize B cells and a tendency to lytic replication, thus contributing to the pathogenesis of this chronic active infection.

15/456. Abnormal visual evoked potentials in children with "Alice in Wonderland" syndrome due to infectious mononucleosis.

    Visual illusions characterized by distortion of form, size, reciprocal position of objects, movement, or color, labeled as "Alice in Wonderland" syndrome, were discussed in children with infectious mononucleosis, as well as in other clinical conditions, such as migraine, epilepsy, use of certain hallucinogenic drugs, etc. The purpose of our study was to investigate for the first time visual evoked potential results in children with "Alice in Wonderland" syndrome associated with infectious mononucleosis. Five children with "Alice in Wonderland" syndrome associated with infectious mononucleosis underwent visual evoked potential studies during and after their clinical symptoms. Visual evoked potential results during the disease demonstrated statistically significant high amplitudes of P100-N145 in all children compared to the control group. A few weeks later, repeated studies after the resolution of the complaints were normal. Since the same findings can be observed in patients with migraine, we postulate that a common pathophysiologic underlying abnormality, which can cause transient focal decreased cerebral perfusion, could be involved in the disease process of these two conditions.

16/456. Severe haemolytic anaemia complicating infectious mononucleosis.

    The case record of a patient suffering from infectious mononucleosis, complicated by severe haemolytic anaemia, with overt intravascular haemolysis, is reported. Investigation of such cases usually shows a high titre of cold agglutinins with anti-i specificity. In the case reported, the results of serological investigations were atypical, and suggested that cold agglutinins with anti-L activity (rather than anti-i) were predominant in the aetiology of the haemolysis.

17/456. azithromycin eruption in infectious mononucleosis: a proposed mechanism of interaction.

    The penicillin family of antibiotics may induce drug eruptions when prescribed to patients with infectious mononucleosis. Very similar phenomena have also been cited with other antibiotic families. We report the first case of a cutaneous reaction in a patient with infectious mononucleosis treated with azithromycin. We propose an immune-based hypothesis to explain the transient sensitivity resulting in this secondary cutaneous eruption.

18/456. Quinolone drug rash in a patient with infectious mononucleosis.

    infectious mononucleosis and the associated ampicillin rash are well documented. The case of a patient with infectious mononucleosis who was treated with levofloxacin and developed a rash similar to the ampicillin rash is reviewed. The exact mechanism is not understood. With closer observation, physicians may be able to recognize more cases with similar phenomena.

19/456. Familial cases of severe measles pneumonia.

    We report two cases of severe measles pneumonia. Patient 1, a 17-year-old boy who contracted measles in the acute phase of infectious mononucleosis caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), transmitted the disease to patient 2, his father. Both patients presented severe pneumonia with bilateral diffuse micronodular shadows. Diagnoses were established in both patients by antibody titers for measles and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) of blood and throat swab. Multinucleated giant cells with intranuclear inclusion bodies were revealed in the transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) specimen of patient 2. Both patients recovered with pulse steroid therapy.

20/456. disseminated intravascular coagulation as an unusual presentation of an Epstein-Barr virus infection.

    Epstein-Barr viral (EBV)-infection usually presents as fever, sore throat, fatigue, lymphadenopathy and atypical lymphocytosis. We describe a patient with disseminated intravascular coagulation as the presenting symptom caused by a primary EBV infection.
