Sunday, February 18; 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Recognize the clinical dermatologic manifestations of EBV infection.
  • Assess the value of laboratory tests used in detecting EBV infection.
  • Discuss the role of EBV as it relates to the immunologic status of the patient.


Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is a ubiquitous virus worldwide that has a wide range of mucocutaneous manifestations. These presentations vary from self-resolving, benign conditions to potentially life threatening lymphoproliferative disorders. This session provides an overview of the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and diagnostic testing in EBV infection. The mucocutaneous and lymphoproliferative presentations of EBV infection will be discussed as well as factors that may pre-dispose to their development.
