Abstract

A 17 yr old boy with documented infectious mononucleosis presented with the clinical, electrocardiographic and enzymatic picture compatible with acute myocardial infarction. He was found to have completely normal findings at cardiac catheterization, including exercise study and coronary arteriography. The diagnosis of focal mononucleosis myocarditis was considered to be the most likely explanation for his unusual clinical course.
