GALLO, Claudia Marcela et al. Mononucleosis syndrome with associated acute nephritic syndrome in a pediatric patient. CES Med. [online]. 2022, vol.36, n.1, pp.59-67.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 0120-8705.

Infectious mononucleosis is a clinical syndrome of viral cause that generally has a benign clinical picture, characterized by fever, pharyngotonsillitis, and generalized lymphadenopathy, being the affectation of organ or systems something unusual. We present the case of an eight-year-old girl with a mononucleosis syndrome due to Epstein-Barr virus and Cytomegalovirus, with a secondary hypocomplementemia acute nephritic syndrome, without deterioration of renal function and favorable clinical evolution. The absence of a latency period between the infectious process and the appearance of nephritic syndrome symptoms are a key element in the differential diagnosis with post-streptococcal acute nephritic syndrome, which is the most common cause in children.

Keywords : infectious mononucleosis; glomerulonephritis; Epstein-Barr virus infections.
