Chronic active Epstein-Barr virus disease in a case of persistent polyclonal B-cell lymphocytosis

  [ 28 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • June 5, 1995


Persistent polyclonal B-cell lymphocytosis (PPBL) is a rare
haematological disorder. It is characterized by activated and
morphologically atypical B lymphocytes and polyclonal IgM
production and has been associated with female sex, cigarette
smoking, and HLA-DR7 expression. We report a case of PPBL with
intermitting symptoms compatible with a chronic fatigue
syndrome, recurrent erythema nodosum and multiforme.
Serological findings suggested a chronic active Epstein-Barr
virus (EBV) infection. Messenger RNA of EBV immediate early
gene transactivation BZLF1 was detected in peripheral blood
lymphocytes by reverse transcriptase PCR indicating a
persistent replication of the virus. Over 2 years of
observation we detected varying numbers of atypical
lymphocytes. These cells hybridized with a probe specific for
the EBV internal repeat region (BamHI W) which indicates a
productive infection. Of interest, no reaction was observed
with a probe specific for the latency-associated small RNAs
(EBERs). The immunological phenotype of the polyclonal B cells
was similar to B-cell lines immortalized by EBV in vitro,
expressing a number of activation molecules (CD23, CD25, CD54)
and the bcl-2 protein. In summary, our findings suggest that
persistent EBV replication might be crucial in the development
of lymphoproliferative disorders such as PPBL.
