Epstien-Barr - Definition


Definition


The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is responsible for several types of diseases. It is a virus of the herpes family that is transmitted through the saliva. The most frequently apparent disease in cases of infection by EBV is infectious mononucleosis, which appears in the form of an angina with a grayish membrane on the tonsils, fever, and swollen glands. It usually disappears suddenly after a few weeks. The diagnosis is confirmed, if necessary, by a blood test with serology analysis. Treatment involves rest and antipyretics for fever. Other diseases may be due to EBV, such as some lymphomas.
