on Epstein-Barr Virus Cindi is a 17-year-old high school student. She leads an active social life, gets good grades, and is a member of the track team. About 2 weeks ago, she became ill with what she thought was the flu. Her symptoms included sore throat, enlarged and tender lymph nodes in her neck, inflamed tonsils, headache, fever, a brief maculopapular skin rash, and generalized muscle aches. She expected to feel better by now but still has many of her symptoms. Therefore, her mother took her to their family physician for evaluation. He noted that Cindi’s spleen is enlarged and that her blood reveals “leukocytosis with arypical lymphocyter and IgM antibodies. Based on these findings, the physician diagnosed Cindi with mononucleosis, a disease caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. He explained that there is no specific cure, but that treatment includes NSAIDs for fever, sore throat, and other discomfort. He also advised her to get plenty of rest and to refrain from vigorous physical activity or contact sports until she has recovered. The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a member of the herpes virus group. It is most common in the United States in poople between ages 15 and 25. Beyond that age, most people are immune to it. Infectious mononucleosis is sometimes called the “kissing disease” because it is transmitted in saliva and infects epithelial cells of the oropharynx, nasopharynx, and salivary glands before spreading to the lymphatic system. It typically causes the symptoms that Cindi experienced, including splenic enlargement. Because splenie rupture could result in life-threatening internal hemorrhage, patients are cautioned to refrain from contact sports until they have fully recovered Case Study Questions Exercise 1.
