Abstract: An asymptomatic athlete recovering from infectious mononucleosis (IM) may return to noncontact sports 3 weeks from symptom onset. Contact sports may be considered 4 weeks from the onset of symptoms or when athletes are symptom-free, afebrile, and have normal energy levels. (SOR C, based on heterogeneous expert opinions.)
