Brief Answer:
Please upload the complete blood count report

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

Hepatosplenomegaly is common in EBV infection. Splenomegaly can persist. Could you please upload the complete blood count report including the peripheral blood smear. It will indicate if the destruction of RBCs is enhanced. Unless that is the case there is no reason to worry.

Feel free to write back.
