My 10 yr old son has had a fever of 103 for 5 days now. His flue, mono, strep and CBC test is normal. Should i be concerned? He has no other symptoms.
I suspect my pre-teen has mono. Waiting for EBV test to come back. In the meantime CBC showed normal WBC&RBC. Does this mean mono is unlikely?
Maybe: The lay term mono is based on the common feature of a high proportion of monocytes on the CBC differential count. The EBV test could indicate recent (elevated IgM, or long time ago =elevated IgG mono. If negative it would likely mean little.Sometimes the test can be negative very early in the illness in kids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lymph nodes : Hello SBaldwin. I am unable to check proper dosages of the meds not knowing her weight but I recommend continuing with the current treatment and labs.

Screening test: The so called "Mono test" is a screening test and is not specific for a particular infection. At least two different infections, EBV and CMV can give a positive result. There are false positives with this test and like any other screening test the results of this test need to be confirmed. ...Read more
Yes, Mono test is: Not a specific test for a given disease. Infection with many viruses can cause a positive "mono test". The commonest viruses are epstein barr virus and cytomegalovirus and a few other infections, so, it can lead to mis-diagnosis.

My dad has mono(test conf) -no symp. He's with my 2yo abt 2hrs, 2x a week. No food/utensil sharing but close interaction. How likely is son to have it?
Little risk: Infectious mono is rare beyond age 20-25. However, assuming your dad's diagnosis is correct, it's not so easily transmissible -- usually by sex or intimate kissing. He should use common sense hygiene and avoid directly exposing your son to his saliva. But normal child-grandfather interactions pose little if any risk. (Your child is at much higher risk of this virus from kids in day care etc.) ...Read more
Doc said "faintly positive" mono test because he saw i carried the antibody. 4 months ago with same symptoms 2 negative mono tests. Lymphoma?
Monotest: A monotest may be negative in the early stage of infectious mononucleosis and turn positive after a week or two. If your liver enzymes and CBC with differential cell count show no abnormalities, the mono has cleared. Lymphoma isn't often diagnosed by simple blood tests and requires a physical exam, xrays , scan and biopsies for definitive diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
