Abstract

Rapid diagnosis of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated infectious mononucleosis was compared by using nine kits and EBV-specific serology. Specific antibodies indicative of primary EBV infection were detected in 46 of 108 (43%) serum samples of infectious mononucleosis patients. The sensitivities and specificities of the rapid kits varied from 63 to 84% and 84 to 100%, respectively.
