Clinical Significance: Infectious mononucleosis (IM), commonly called “mono” is an acute, generally self-limited, lymphoproliferative disease caused by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). The diagnosis of IM is usually based on the evaluation of characteristic clinical, hematological and serologic changes. Because other diseases may mimic the clinical and hematological symptoms of IM, serological testing is important for an accurate diagnosis. Serological diagnosis of IM is demonstrated by the presence of heterophile and EBV antibodies
