Glandular fever is a type of viral infection. It is also known as infectious mononucleosis. It can cause fever, sore throat, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and glands. It is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It is one of the most common viruses that can affect humans. Most EBV infections occur during early childhood. They usually produce few or no symptoms. Afterwards, the virus will remain in the body for life, lying dormant in a number of throat and blood cells. reference http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/167390.php
