No. While there are rare reports of deaths from Mono (around 1%), usually these are caused by the complications like asphyxia (airway obstruction), encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain) or rupture of the spleen. This is most seen among those with impaired immune system like transplant patients or persons with AIDS. In general, most Mono patients recover fully.

Unfortunately, the answer is yes. You can die from complications of the disease, like spleen rupture, hepatitis, encephalitis, ect. Like the flu, most people will be fine after a week of so of miserable symptoms. There will be some who have severe symptoms that require hospitalization for supportive care.

Mono is VERY rarely fatal, but your spleen can very easily be ruptured when you have mono, and if it is but no attention is paid to it, THIS can be very fatal and has happened in some cases, it is not rare.

I really think you can be immune to mono because my boyfriend has it and he came over the day before he went to the doctor's office to get his blood work back and we kissed a lot and I don't have mono and it's 5 weeks later now. It says on the KidsHealth website (related link below) that you can spread it up to 7 weeks before you have symptoms and for up to 4 weeks with symptoms. He had it for at least 2 weeks by the time he found out and we open mouth kissed all the way up until he got the blood work back. So I don't know how I didn't get it unless it's possible that you can be immune to it.
