The German Association of Pediatricians and Adolescents says that “Glandular fever” is a viral disease caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, and it attacks children and adolescents in particular.

The association explained that this disease, also known as Pfeiffer’s Disease, is transmitted mostly through saliva during kissing, so it is also known as “kissing disease.” Other methods of infection transmission include the use of common tableware with an infected person, or contact with blood or other body fluids of an infected person.

Symptoms of this disease include high body temperature, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes, enlarged spleen, and general physical debilitation.

In addition to drug therapy, the patient must stop exercising for a period of not less than 3 weeks, especially sports with physical friction such as ball games in addition to weight lifting, due to the risk of the spleen being torn. This is true even if fever and sore throat subside.
