Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) is a human B‐lymphotropic herpes virus and one of the most common viruses in humans. Specific skin signs related to EBV infection are the exanthem of mononucleosis, which is observed more frequently after ingestion of amoxicillin, and oral hairy leukoplakia, a disease occurring mostly in immunocompromised subjects with HIV infection. Other more uncommon cutaneous disorders that have been associated with EBV infection include virus‐related exanthems or diseases such as… Expand
Dermatological manifestations of Epstein‐Barr virus systemic infection: a case report and literature review
TLDR
A case of atypical exanthem with an erythematous‐papulovesicular pattern in a 22‐year‐old female patient with IM is reported and a review of the literature of the cutaneous and mucosal eruptions occurring during EBV acute infections is performed. Expand
Epstein-Barr virus and skin*
TLDR
The Epstein-Barr virus is a DNA virus infecting human beings and could affect 90% of human population, and when the onset is in cutaneous tissue, it can present many clinical variants, as well acute as chronic ones. Expand
Epstein-Barr virus: dermatologic associations and implications: part I. Mucocutaneous manifestations of Epstein-Barr virus and nonmalignant disorders.
TLDR
The mucocutaneous manifestations of EBV infection are reviewed with an emphasis on pathophysiology and management and a comprehensive overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiological, and diagnostic testing inEBV infection is provided. Expand
Epstein-Barr virus: dermatologic associations and implications: part II. Associated lymphoproliferative disorders and solid tumors.
TLDR
The salient features of EBV-associated lymphoproliferative disorders and solid tumors are detailed and may imply a role, but they do not equate with causation. Expand
Epstein-Barr Virus and Its Association with Oral Hairy Leukoplakia: A Short Review
In immunocompromised subjects, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection of terminally differentiated oral keratinocytes may result in subclinical productive infection of the virus in the stratum spinosumExpand
Skin eruptions in children: Drug hypersensitivity vs viral exanthema
TLDR
A systematic clinical approach is proposed for timely differential diagnosis and management of rashes in children who present a cutaneous eruption while receiving a drug. Expand
Viral Diseases and Exanthems of the Skin
TLDR
Progress to make in the management of rarer cutaneous viruses such as orf and cowpox is made in the developing world through immunization programs. Expand
Incidence of Antibiotic-Related Rash in Children with Epstein-Barr Virus Infection and Evaluation of the Frequency of Confirmed Antibiotic Hypersensitivity
TLDR
The incidence of drug hypersensitivity was much lower than previously reported, and patients with a positive EBV IgM who developed a rash should be evaluated with allergy tests before these drugs are used again after EBV infection. Expand
Viral exanthems
TLDR
Important clues to the diagnosis of viral exanthems include their distribution and morphology, geographic location and potential exposure to vector-borne or blood-borne viruses. Expand
Immunoinformatic and systems biology approaches to predict and validate peptide vaccines against Epstein–Barr virus (EBV)
TLDR
A panel of epitopes that could be used to immunize populations to protect against multiple diseases caused by EBV are suggested and selected based on their TAP, MHC binding and C-terminal Cleavage score. Expand

TLDR
The current understanding of the pathogenesis of CAEBV is summarized and a model ofCAEBV pathogenicity is proposed, which suggests a defect or single nucleotide polymorphism in host immune‐modulating genes may allow for the expansion of virus infected cells giving rise to CA EBV. Expand

TLDR
This is the first EM case in which evidence of theEBV causal role has been provided, and the association with chronic fatigue syndrome suggests the EBV role in selected cases of this syndrome. Expand

Both typical and severe HV are included within the spectrum of cutaneous disorders mediated by EBV-infected T cells, and thesevere HV group may have overt EBv-associated NK/T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders with a frequently fatal outcome. Expand

Papillary dermal edema was marked and a consistent finding in the 3 cases in which EBV was the most likely etiologic agent and may be a relatively distinctive histologic finding with GCS associated with EBV. Expand
