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? 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:33, 14 June 2013 (UTC)
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
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...184.108.40.206 (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 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:12, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
