Abstract

A case concerning a 21-year-old male college student with thrombocytopenia and neutropenia complicating infectious mononucleosis is presented. Although the patient had no prior history of alloimmunization, a broad spectrum anti-HLA antibody was strongly positive in his serum. Concomitant with resolution of the hematologic abnormalities, the titer of the antibody diminished. This case is unique both in the severity of the thrombocytopenia and neutropenia and for the circulating HLA antibody most likely of viral origin.
