Herpesviruses are abundant in nature. Nowadays more than 100 herpes viruses are distinguished, a small amount of which occurs in humans. Herpesvirus can remain persistent in a human body for the entire lifetime causing diseases with multiple clinical implications

Human is the only reservoir of Epstein-Barr virus. At an early age, the infection is accompanied by slight manifestations or it is generally asymptomatic; initial infection at teenage or more advanced age can cause a disease known as infectious mononucleosis. Chronic EBV infection is more common among patients with immunodeficiency. Chronic infection mostly manifests itself in the form of progressive lymphoproliferative disease or CNS lymphoma. The virus can cause malignant transformation of cells, that gives reason to assume that it is involved in such diseases as African forms of Burkitt’s lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma in men from some ethnic groups of southern China, as well as Kaposi sarcoma in patients with AIDS.
