Abstract

Adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) is a distinct clinical entity which affects predominantly young adults aged 16-35 years. Onset in elderly individuals is exceptional. Several reports have suggested a viral trigger in the pathogenesis of this disease. We describe a 66-year-old woman who fulfilled the proposed diagnostic criteria of AOSD and suffered concurrently from acute Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection.
