BACKGROUND In Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, IgG- and IgM-antibodies to viral capsid antigen (VCA) and IgG-antibodies to Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen 1 (EBNA-1) can occur simultaneously both in late primary infection and during subclinical viral reactivation in immunocompetent persons, and the differential diagnosis is of importance. OBJECTIVES To study the prevalence of primary infection and serological reactivation in patients with suspected primary EBV infection and with all three… CONTINUE READING
