More than 90% of the population is infected with Epstein-Barr
virus (EBV), which is an enveloped herpesvirus. EBV infection in
immunocompetent individuals causes a mild self-limiting illness, but
the virus persists lifelong as a latent infection in B cells and spreads in
the community by productive replication in B cells and oral epithelial
cells. Rickinson AB: EBV infection and EBV-associated tumors, in Minson AC,
