Abstract

It is well known that the Ebstein-Barr virus causes not only infectious mononucleosis in the most cases, but also occasionally causes a variety of hematologic disorders such as anemia (hemolytic anemia or aplastic anemia), thrombocytopenia, neutropenia and malignancies such as Burkitt lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Furthermore, recently it is has been reported that it causes leukemia even though very rarely. The authors report a case of erythroleukemia possibly related to chronic Ebstein-Barr virus infection in a 14-year-old boy with brief review of related literatures.
