• During a five-year period, three patients were seen with postanginal sepsis occurring within ten days of the onset of infectious mononucleosis. Postanginal sepsis was not diagnosed in other hospitalized patients during this period. These cases demonstrate that postanginal sepsis can be a complication of infectious mononucleosis.
