Mononuclosis

Were you looking for information about Mononucleosis? Mononuclosis is a common misspelling of mononucleosis.
 
Mononucleosis (mono) is an infectious disease that most commonly occurs in people 10 to 35 years old. It is caused by either the Epstein-Barr virus or cytomegalovirus, viruses that are in the herpes family. The illness is usually spread through saliva and mucus (which is why it is often referred to as the "kissing disease"), but can also be transmitted through sipping from the same straw or glass as an infected person. Symptoms of mononucleosis may include fever, tonsillitis, chills, and swollen lymph nodes.
