Development of EBV disease and PTLD is usually accompanied by the detection of a high EBV load in peripheral blood. However, many children undergoing primary EBV infection following LTx will maintain chronically elevated EBV loads in the absence of clinical symptoms. To better understand this phenomenon, we retrospectively reviewed the records of children undergoing LTx at our center from 1997 to 2007 to identify chronic high EBV load carriers in this population. A CHL state was defined by the… CONTINUE READING
