Infectious Mononucleosis, or mono, is a viral illness that can spread easily to others and is most common in young adults. Symptoms can mimic a common cold and include sore throat, swollen glands, weakness and fatigue. If you suspect that you or your child have mono, getting an accurate diagnosis quickly is very important.
Infectious mononucleosis (IM), also known as mono, or glandular fever, is an infection most commonly caused by the Epstein–Barr virus (EBV). Most people are exposed to the virus as children, when the disease produces no noticeable or only flu-like symptoms. Especially in adolescents and young adults, the disease is characterized by fever, sore throat and feeling tired. Occasionally, the symptoms can recur at a later period.
