A case of new daily persistent headache with elevated antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus.
TLDR
A 45-year-old woman presented with persistent headache which was of acute onset and occurred daily and was thought to be related to EBV reactivation.
New daily persistent headache: clinical and serological characteristics in a retrospective study
TLDR
The data suggest that viruses other than EBV can play a role in NDPH, and a recent herpes simplex virus infection in 42% and cytomegalovirus infection in 11% of cases is shown.
Raised Titers Of Antibodies To Herpes And Epstein-Barr Viruses In Cluster Headache Detected By Emjnofluorescence
TLDR
The titers of antibodies (Ab) to HSV and EBV has been appraised in 20 episodic CH patients during the CH period and outside it and the mean titer for I& Ab to E X shmed to be higher during the cluster period as well as outside it.
Chronic fatigue syndrome: thoughts on pathogenesis.
  • A. Evans

    Reviews of infectious diseases

TLDR
The cause(s) and cure of CFS, a common and distressing syndrome, are enigmatic and require multidisciplinary study; examples of this phenomenon are given.
Antibodies to Epstein-Barr virus-specific DNase and DNA polymerase in the chronic fatigue syndrome.
TLDR
Since three of the six patients with elevated anti-EBV enzyme antibody levels developed fatal lymphomas, patients with chronic EBV and this antibody profile might be in another illness category at risk for malignant disease.
Headache and painful lymphadenopathy in extracranial or systemic infection: etiology of new daily persistent headaches.
TLDR
From 108 cases of new daily persistent headaches, clinical or laboratory evidence was found suggesting extracranial or systemic infections in 28 cases of gastrointestinal mainly Salmonella and urinary Coli, and four cases of Epstein Barr virus or Toxoplasma.
Connection Between Lower Natural Killer Function And Susceptibility To Viral Infection In Cluster Headache
TLDR
Whether CH patients w i t h or without recent clinical manifestations of herpes virus (HV) infections shcw a natural k i l l e r activity, being this s t r i c t ly related to i m e response i n viral infections is investigated.
Epstein-Barr Virus Encephalitis in an Immunocompetent Child: A Case Report and Management of Epstein-Barr Virus Encephalitis
TLDR
A seven-year-old boy with EBV encephalitis who presented with prolonged fever, exudative pharyngitis, reduced consciousness, and neck stiffness was diagnosed and discharged with acyclovir therapy without any sequelae.
Post-infectious new daily persistent headache may respond to intravenous methylprednisolone
TLDR
It is concluded that NDPH-like headache may occur as a post infectious process following a recent infection.

Persisting illness and fatigue in adults with evidence of Epstein-Barr virus infection.
TLDR
It is believed that the Epstein-Barr virus may be associated with chronic illness in adults and the activity of 2-5 oligoadenylate synthetase, an interferon-induced enzyme, was increased in 5 patients studied.
Changes in Epstein-Barr Virus Antibody Titers Associated with Aging
TLDR
There may be some loss of control over latent EBV by the cellular immune response in geriatric individuals, according to antibody titers measured in 44 geriatric subjects.
Depression correlated with cellular immunity in systemic immunodeficient Epstein-Barr virus syndrome (SIDES).
TLDR
Evidence that EBV viremia may be causally related to depression was provided by a strong correlation between the intensity of depressive symptoms and the cellular immune response to the EBV infection.
Documentation of Epstein-Barr virus infection in immunodeficient patients with life-threatening lymphoproliferative diseases by clinical, virological, and immunopathological studies.
TLDR
EBV in the tissues of all 14 patients and immunodeficient antibody responses to EBV were documented and this virus can produce various life-threatening lymphoproliferative diseases in a variety of immunodficient patients.
Epstein Barr virus-specific immune defects in patients with persistent symptoms following infectious mononucleosis.
TLDR
The syndrome of persistent symptoms following EBV mononucleosis may be associated with a defect in EBV-specific immunity, and thus suggest a possible immunological basis for the syndrome.
Primary Epstein-Barr-virus infections in acute neurologic diseases.
TLDR
It is evident that the virus must be considered in the diagnosis of various acute neurologic diseases affecting children and young adults, even in the absence of heterophil-antibody response or other signs of infectious mononucleosis.
Epstein-Barr virus infections and DNA hybridization studies in posttransplantation lymphoma and lymphoproliferative lesions: the role of primary infection.
TLDR
Data suggest that EBV plays an etiologic role in the development of B cell lymphomas or lymphoproliferative lesions after kidney, liver, heart, or heart-lung transplantation in Pittsburgh during 1981-1983.
