Infectious mononucleosis (commonly called ""mono"") often produces symptoms of fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands. The name infectious mononucleosis refers to the appearance of infected white blood cells, as they appear to have a grossly distorted single nucleus, together with an increase in the number of monocytes.
Mono is caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which is a member of the herpesvirus family and one of the most common human viruses. As many as 95% of adults between 35 and 40 years of age have been infected with EBV sometime during their lives.
Mono is sometimes referred to as the ""kissing disease"" because transmission of EBV requires contact with the saliva of an infected person. However, EBV is also found in the saliva of healthy people; in fact, these people can carry and spread the virus intermittently for life.
Diagnosis of mono is based on the evaluation of characteristic clinical symptoms and serologic changes. Serologic diagnosis of mono can be based on the detection of heterophile and EBV-specific antibodies.
