Is it a dangerous disease?

In most cases, the Epstein Barr virus is not a dangerous disease. However, according to the literature, we should also remember that it has a variety of secondary issues and complications. For example, some patients may develop significant airway obstructions and fatigue. In other cases, the Epstein Barr virus affects other organs, including the kidneys, the central nervous system, and the spleen.

We should highlight splenic rupture, which is rare but has been thoroughly described in the literature. It usually happens between the 4th and the 21st day of the disease and can be prevented by resting and receiving supportive therapy if you have significant splenomegaly.
