The frequency of symptoms and laboratory findings characteristic for infectious mononucleosis were examined. In most cases the clinical manifestations were pharyngitis and enlargement of lymphe nodes and spleen (in 80%). Nasal speech was present in 90% of children, which is rarely mentioned in literature.
