    Epstein-Barr VirusWhat is the Epstein-Barr virus?

    The Epstein-Barr virus is one of a family of herpes viruses. The Epstein-Barr virus is present in up to 90% of the world's population but most never show any symptoms.

    It usually lies dormant until eg stress or illness upsets the immune system. It causes glandular fever (infectious mononucleosis.)

    The virus remains with you for life.
