Brief Answer: Curable Detailed Answer: Hi Do not worry. Thanks for writing to health care magic. Ebstein Barr virus infection is definitely curable. It's self limiting and disease settles within few days to a week . Sometimes it does get severe and can cause pneumonia sepsis etc. But with proper treatment and round the clock monitoring, I think your nephew is in safe hands. Wishing speedy recovery. Regards Dr Arun
