Mononukleose

Were you looking for information about Mononucleosis? Mononukleose is a common misspelling of mononucleosis.
 
Mononucleosis (mono) is a viral illness that is most common in people 10 to 35 years old, with its peak incidence in those 15 to 17 years old. It is caused by either the Epstein-Barr virus or cytomegalovirus, and is usually spread through saliva and mucus. People with mononucleosis often experience a fever, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, and body aches. Although there is no treatment to kill the viruses that cause the illness, treatments are available to relieve symptoms as the body fights the infection.
