Infectious mononucleosis is an EBV-induced infection, and this is a self-limiting clinical syndrome with such characteristics as fever, pharyngitis, headache, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly and multiple lymphadenopathy among children and young adults. On the other hand, EBV infection-induced gastrointestinal symptoms like anorexia, nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia, abdominal pain, gastric bleeding and diarrhea are non-specific signs and there is less of a chance of EBV infection being involved with gastrointestinal disease. Especially, the relation of gastric cancer and gastric lymphoma with EBV infection is well defined, but other EBV-related gastrointestinal diseases have rarely been reported. Therefore, we report here on a case of acute erosive EBV gastritis that was diagnosed as EBV-induced infectious mononucleosis, and this was confirmed by esophagogastroduodenoscopy with biopsy.
Key Words: Infectious mononucleosis, Epstein-Barr virus, Acute erosive gastritis
