A case of glandular toxoplasmosis in a 38 year old farmer is described. The chief clinical features in this case were enlarged moderately tender axillary lymph nodes and an illness characterized by fatigue and lassitude lasting several months. The parasites were isolated from biopsied lymph nodes. Removal of a large mass of moderately tender lymph nodes from which the organisms were isolated coincided with an improvement of the patient's sense of well-being. The patient recovered without any specific treatment and remained well at the time of a five year follow-up examination.
