How can a 2 year old get glandular fever?

Jack has had a high fever for 4 days, then he developed a rash all over his body. So we took him to the doctor to confirm what we thought was measles.... we came away with a diagnosis of Glandular Fever, or the Epstein-Barr virus infectious mononucleosis.

I am gutted.

All the doctor would say was 'don't let him play rough - his spleen might tear'.

His spleen?

You have no idea how gutted I am.
Oh, and the little line at the end of the information print-out says "periodically, the virus can reactivate..."

Gutted. Absolutely Gutted.
