EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS ANTIBODIES TO VIRAL CAPSID ANTIGEN (VCA), IgG & IgM

Primary infection by EBV causes Infectious mononucleosis, usually a self limiting disease in children and young adults. Infection with EBV can cause Lymphoproliferative disorders including tumors. VCA-IgG appears approximately 10 weeks after initial infection and persists for life. VCA IgM appears approximately 4–6 weeks after initial infection and declines after about 3 months.
