Nonetheless, it might be a source. I also assume that you and your friend have considered the NIH center on rare diseases: https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/ <https://rarediseases.info.nih.gov/>.

Here is the gist of what I understand: He is in his early 20’s. 4 years ago he had a severe case of infectious mono. Since then his spleen has remained mildly enlarged and becomes excruciatingly painful during recurrent episodes flu-like symptoms.

I realize that the SIDM list is not the place to sort this out.  So here’s my question: Are there any online forums (or other resources) where clinicians and/or patients share diagnostic dilemmas?
