In 2019, almost 5.5 thousand people fell ill with infectious mononucleosis in Ukraine.
It is reported by the Center for Public Health on Facebook.
“In 2019, 5,467 people were infected with infectious mononucleosis in Ukraine. In particular, 863 cases were recorded in rural areas and 4,597 cases were reported in children under the age of 17,” said the report.
As noted, infectious mononucleosis is an acute anthropogenic viral disease caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). The term “mononucleosis-like syndrome” is used to denote conditions which are clinically reminiscent of infectious mononucleosis, but which have a specific etiology (cytomegalovirus infection, acute retroviral syndrome).

The source of infection is a sick or infected person.
Clinical manifestations of infectious mononucleosis include fever, generalized or regional lymphadenopathy; tonsillitis, pharyngitis and hepatosplenomegaly; characteristic changes in the general analysis of the blood (lymphomonocytosis, atypical mononuclear cells).
In most cases, the prognosis for infectious mononucleosis is favorable.
