Merge of mononucleosis
- Support, however belatedly... The ICD10 classification  includes both EBV (B27.0) and CMV (B27.1), as well as "other infectious" (B27.8) and "unspecified" (B27.9). In addition to the issue of page confusion with mononucleosis, wouldn't it be helpful to have information on the CMV cause here? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:33, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
- Adding: Any reader who simply types 'mononucleosis' in the search bar, maybe expecting a redirect to Infectious mononucleosis, currently gets taken by default to Mononucleosis (where the lead links to the Infectious mononucleosis page only via "glandular fever", a term which could be unfamiliar to an American reader). 18.104.22.168 (talk) 10:37, 15 June 2013 (UTC)
Strep throat is another differential.
If pt. has both, it complicates treatment, antibiotics may be indicated, but "Patients with EBV infectious mononucleosis who have positive throat cultures for group A streptococci should not be treated because this represents colonization rather than infection (see Workup)." http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/222040-medication
This seems to be an excellent ref and we are not using it.

Signs and symptoms section
Well, I suppose if a shorter "Signs and symptoms" section is felt to be preferable, then the present draft  could be transplanted to a subpage. I've tried to make key available evidence easily retrievable for professionals, while at the same time keeping the section reasonably accessible to lay users. A bit like squaring the circle though perhaps...126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:07, 22 June 2013 (UTC)
First line - all infectious mononucleosis is caused by EBV
This is not true, as mentioned later in the article, EBV only accounts for the majority of infecitous mononucleosis. The first sentence is therefore misleading and should read. "infectoius mononocleosus is PRIMARILY caused by EBV" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:12, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
Under the Pathophysiology header, the following sentence: "When symptoms of infectious mononucleosis have been caused by cytomegalovirus, or by adenovirus or Toxoplasma gondii (toxoplasmosis), a heterophile antibody test will test negative."
is misleading. Someone reading this might interpret this sentence as saying that toxoplasma gondii can cause infectious mononucleosis, which is just plain untrue. The language used is easy to misinterpret. Can someone please change this to reflect that toxoplasmosis can have similar symptoms to mononucleosis, but is not the same disease. Thanks.
