Mono Question

Jul 29, 1999

Dr. Holodniy,

Is it possible to get mono more than once in a lifetime. I have heard several conflicting reports, my Dr. told me you could not, but then a co-worker who is recovering from mono, told me that her doctor said you could get mono more than once. Thank you for your time.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Different viruses can cause mono-like illnesses, so yes. And a small minority of patients who get EBV mono, can develop chronic infection with exacerbations of the disease. MH
