When There's Nothing Going On...There's Always the Goings On Of The "Boys" Down South
CC leads the WCHA in mononucleosis this season with two confirmed cases. As a public health service to Colorado Springs "Puck Bunnies" here's a little background.
Infectious mononucleosis, sometimes called "mono," "The kissing disease" or "The Tiger Flu" in Colorado Springs is an infection that is usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).
Hockey players who have been infected with EBV will carry the virus for the rest of their lives - even if they never have any signs or symptoms of mono.
People often kid around about mono, but as Scott Owens has discovered, it's no joke. A case of mono can keep you out of the lineup for months.
