Has she had a mononucleosis test? Has a rheumatologist been involved in her workup? She may have a type of autoimmune vasculitis. Is her platelet count normal or does she have thrombocytopenia, which can also be autoimmune, and which leads to easy bruising. I feel she requires more testing & an infectious disease specialist consultation.
