Patient discussion about mono

Q. can mono kill you if it gets to the liver? otherwise known as the kissing desiaes.

A. It can be fatal, not necessarily through infecting the liver but through rupture of enlarged spleen or obstruction of the throat, or through the development of cancer (e.g. lymphoma) later in life.

However, these complications are very rare, and most people recover from the disease without major complications.
