The Side-Effect of Kissing

Sunday, June 22, 2008

Infectious mononucleosis, also branded as Pfeiffer's disease, mono (in North America) and more frequently known as glandular fever in further English-speaking countries. It occurs nearly all normally in adolescents and young adults, where it is characterized by fever, sore throat, muscle soreness, and fatigue.

The misnomer "kissing disease" is often functional to mono, as in developed countries it is most frequent at the same age when adolescents and young adults are initiating romantic behavior. This incidence is not evident in undeveloped countries, where poor hygiene and close living preparations cause the causative virus to be extend at a much earlier age, when the disease is placid and seldom diagnosed.
