Les syndromes douloureux abdominaux au cours de la mononucléose infectieuse sont rares et habituellement rapportés à une hépato- ou une splénomégalie. Nous décrivons chez une fille âgée de huit ans la survenue d'un tableau douloureux d'allure péritonéale, lié à une lymphadénite mésentérique associée à une primo-infection par le virus d'Epstein-Barr. L'évolution a été favorable en l'absence d'intervention chirurgicale. À propos de cette observation, nous nous proposons de passer en revue les différentes causes des douleurs abdominales au cours de la mononucléose infectieuse.
