TLDR
Sera from 120 patients with sarcoidosis, 21 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and 25 patients with non-sarcoid erythema nodosum examined for antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus by means of immunofluorescence (IF) and immunodiffusion (ID) techniques found high EBV IF titers and strong ID reactions significantly more often than the matched controls.
