GARCIA B, Cristián et al. ULTRASONOGRAFIA DOPPLER COLOR EN EL DIAGNOSTICO DE MONONUCLEOSIS INFECCIOSA EN EL NIÑO. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2004, vol.10, n.3, pp.102-108. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082004000300003.

Infectious mononucleosis is a common disease in children and in most cases, the diagnosis can be suspected with clinical findings alone and confirmed with serologic study. However, in some patients, clinical pesentation can be atypical. When presented with poliadenopahy, high-resolution color-Doppler ultrasonography (US) could be helpful in the differential diagnosis. We present the US characteristics of 10 children who presented with lymphadenopathy and had infectious mononucleosis, confirmed by serologic study. US findings were relatively constant in all patients. When sonographic findings are correlated with clinical and laboratory findings , a correct diagnosis can be suspected
