A number of cases have been reported earlier in which surgical intervention for pulmonary tuberculosis was followed by fever, associated with hematologic changes resembling those in infectious mononucleosis. An account is given in the present paper of a similar complication as a sequel of blood vessel grafting. The case illustrates some of the diagnostic problems which may arise, despite the benign nature of the condition. Certain possible etiologic factors are also discussed.
