Genital ulcers caused by Epstein-Barr virus

, : Genital ulcers caused by Epstein-Barr virus. Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology 51(5): 824-826

In North America, the most common cause of vulvar ulcers is infection with herpes simplex virus. However, Epstein-Barr virus can also cause vulvar ulcers, and may be underrecognized. Unlike herpes simplex virus, Epstein-Barr virus is not necessarily sexually transmitted. Therefore, it is particularly important to include in the differential diagnosis of genital ulcers for patients for whom a diagnosis of a venereal infection has important psychosocial consequences. We report three cases of acute primary Epstein-Barr virus infection in which the presenting symptoms were vulvar ulceration.

To assess cooperation between G-CSF signals and C/EBPalpha, we characterized Ba/F3 pro-B cell lines expressing C/EBPalphaWT-ER and the G-CSF receptor (GCSFR). In these lines, GCSFR signals can be evaluated independent of their effect on C/EBPalpha...
