Epstein-Barr virus is a viral infection causing fevers, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck.
The disease occurs worldwide in adolescents and young adults. EBV more frequently is acquired in childhood in underdeveloped nations, and therefore the syndrome of acute infectious mononucleosis is unusual in these nations.
The majority of cases don’t require a specific treatment and recovery is rapid and in neurological involvement marked thrombocytopenia or haemolysis, corticosteroid therapy is advised.
Fever and sore throat with exudate (deposits of fluid) around the tonsils and pharynx are typical symptoms.
