Mononucleosis - Infectious Mononucleosis (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Mononucleosis (mono) is a viral infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This virus is transmitted through infected saliva. This may happen by sharing a drinking glass, utensils, or food, or through coughing, sneezing, and kissing. Despite common belief, mono is not very contagious. People in the same house rarely come down with it at the same time. It is more common in 15- to 25-year-olds. This may be because of more intimate or closer contact with others. For most people, the EBV infection usually occurs during infancy or childhood and without the typical signs of mono developing. Audio available. (English)

So gastroesophageal reflux is the backwards movement of food and acid from the stomach into the esophagus. Burping, and spitting up are common after a baby feeds. Most babies spit up to some degree without discomfort and it usually fades by the first or second year. This is called gastroesophageal reflux(without “disease”). Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when there are symptoms of discomfort, or poor weight gain.Older children and adolescents may also get GERD. Audio available. (English)
