  • Acute disease characterized by fever and swollen lymph nodes and an abnormal increase of mononuclear leucocytes or monocytes in the bloodstream; not highly contagious; some believe it can be transmitted by kissing.
  • Infectious mononucleosis, or "mono", is an infection caused by the epstein-barr virus. The virus spreads through saliva, which is why it's sometimes called "kissing disease." mono occurs most often in 15 to 17-year-olds. However, you can get it at any age. Symptoms of mono include
    • fever
    • sore throat
    • swollen lymph glands
    sometimes you may also have a swollen spleen. Serious problems are rare. A blood test can show if you have mono. Most people get better in two to four weeks. However, you may feel tired for a few months afterward. Treatment focuses on helping symptoms and includes medicines for pain and fever, warm salt water gargles and plenty of rest and fluids.
