Thirteen cases of benign and malignant Epstein-Barr viral (EBV)-associated B cell lymphoproliferations were examined by in situ hybridization studies performed on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections. EBV nucleic acids were identified in a minority of lymphoid cells in five of six cases of benign infectious mononucleosis studied in tonsil or lymph node specimens. No evidence of EBV was found in two splenectomy specimens from patients with infectious mononucleosis. EBV nucleic acids… CONTINUE READING
