Redirect, disambiguation or article?
I think the article might better be handled as a disambiguation page (retaining most of the content it had, but with some reformatting). That would retain the link to Monocytosis, which at the moment has been lost. It would also encourage disambiguation of the links to this article (making them more specific to either EBV infectious mononucleosis or CMV infectious mononucleosis).

Although EBV infectious mononucleosis is more common, Google search suggested that about twice as many pages relating to it, compared to CMV version. Not clear that overwhelming majority. But as noted above, main advantage of using a disambiguation page here at the moment is encouraging more specific links in linking articles. Zodon (talk) 02:06, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
62 Misfit (talk) 02:57, 24 April 2009 (UTC): I don't know why you keep on about monocytosis; this seems fairly simple to me. The mononucleosis article is completely pointless, as it has zero useful information on it and consists of less than fifty words. It makes much more sense to just merge it into the infectious mononucleosis article, and leave it at that.
In the article, I believe the first symptom listed was "sore throat and tonsils." Some may interpret (as I did) that mononucleosis causes "tonsils" (vice sore tonsils, swollen tonsils, or tonsilitis). Most people are born with tonsils and still have them throughout their lives. Perhaps a minor revision would be in order. ^I'm pretty sure that most people won't think a virus will cause their tonsils to grow back, but OK. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 04:35, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
