EBV is an etiological agent in infectious mononucleosis, is implicated in some malignant lymphomas and lymphoepithelioma-like carcinomas, and has been sporadically reported in carcinomas of the breast, lung, and other sites. We studied immunohistochemically benign and malignant tumors of the breast, lung, colon, and prostate and found EBV in some carcinomas of those sites. Also, EBV reactions were noted in hyperplasias and dysplasias, e.g., breast carcinomas in situ and prostatic… CONTINUE READING
