It is a quite common infection of children by the Ebstein Barr virus and normally clears up by itself. It can affect the liver and the lungs but the enzyme count should go back to normal after the infection. They think that in teenagers and adults it can cause yuppy flu but I have never heard of a child getting yuppy flu from it.
