Not long ago, you treated 15-year-old high-schooler and rugby team captain Adam McGlynn for infectious mononucleosis. You cleared him to attend school, but asked that he avoid contact sports for four weeks.
Unfortunately, boys will be boys. Just three weeks later, Adam is brought to the ED, accompanied by his coach. Apparently, he started rugby practice yesterday, after informing his coach that it was “safe for him to practice now.”
