There are increasing reports supporting a role for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in AIDS; EBV-DNA has been detected in lymphomas and other pathologic lesions, oral hairy leukoplakia and lymphocytic interstitial pneumonitis, found in these patients. The present study expanded on the possible contribution of EBV to the development of AIDS and related disorders by determining the viral load in these patients. The results were compared to those from two control groups.
