Mono: "glandular fever, " aka mononucleosis, is caused most of the time (a bit over 90%) by the epstein barr virus. That's what the tests look for. But because it's a diagnosis made by clinical signs and symptoms, and because other viruses can cause an identical picture, it's still likely mononucleosis, but from another virus.
