Mononucleiosis

Were you looking for information about Mononucleosis? Mononucleiosis is a common misspelling of mononucleosis.
 
Mononucleosis (mono) is an infectious illness that is caused by a virus. It is most common in people between the ages of 10 and 35, with its peak incidence in those 15 to 17 years old. The disease is usually spread through saliva and mucus, which is where the "kissing disease" nickname comes from. Enlarged glands or lymph nodes are the most distinguishing symptom of mononucleosis; other symptoms may include fever, body aches, sore throat, and chills.
