Mono: Mono can effect the liver. The number provided does not help.

Hard to say: Mono is one of numerous viral illnesses that can cause increased levels of injury related markers from liver irritation.This irritation is a sign of a mild to moderate hepatitis that will almost always resolve without treatment. The number you gave, without the context of what it pertains to, (an enzyme level, an antibody test,etc) provides no useful data.
A 22-year-old female asked:
Can smoking cigarettes effect your spleen if it is enlarged from mono? Can it effect your liver while recovering from mono.

Probably not: I am not aware of tobacco's effects on the spleen or liver, but it can cause throat , lung, and bladder plus some other forms of cancers. It also worsens asthma and causes emphysema especially for women. You should take this opportunity to quit smoking instead of asking for justification to smoke. Name me one health benefit from smoking and then we can talk.
