Mononucleosis


CONDITIONS

Mononucleosis

Infectious mononucleosis, commonly known as “mono” or “kissing disease,” is caused by a virus and often transmitted through saliva. While it can be acquired by kissing, it is probably more commonly passed on by exposure to an infected person’s coughs or sneezes, or by sharing drinking cups or tableware. The disease is most often seen in teenagers and young adults. Younger children may also be affected, but generally exhibit fewer and less-pronounced symptoms. Some common symptoms of mononucleosis include fatigue, muscular weakness, sore throat, fever, swollen lymph nodes and/or tonsils, poor appetite and a soft or swollen spleen. Since this is a viral disease, antibiotics aren't an effective treatment; instead, rest and drinking plenty of fluids are recommended. However, it's wise to consult a physician to obtain a definite diagnosis and learn how best to reduce your symptoms.
