Child tested positive for EBV. What does it mean? - Online Doctor Chats
my son has tested +ve for EBV
can u please explain me what this is
May i know his age ?? and the name of the test done ?
he is 8
he had streptococi ingection a few days back
was hospitalised and treated he is fine now
let me check and revert in a min pls
test description infection
was the test for IgG also done ?
the test done so far is to detect EBV infection, which is a very common cause of respiratory infection
but since this is a very common infection, and most kids, by the age of 5 - 10 yrs will be exposed to this ,
hope its not serious
coz i see the wors elisa here
presence of I gM positivity is a indicator of recent viral infection
but , the test can also cross react with other viruses also like CMV, etc
also, were there any other tests done, along with the above test ?
whats an enlarged spleen?
ok i got it
did a google
it is a enlargement of spleen , which is situated in the left side of the abdomen
and this is enlarged in EBV infections
presence of the antibody, without any other issues, is a nonspecific finding, and there is no need to worry about it
