Abstract

Introduction: EBV infection is a common condition usually characterized by an asymptomatic course. Its diagnosis is gaining importance due to the increasing number of immunosuppressive patients. This study aimed to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of ELISA test in detection of EBV VCA IgG when IFA is considered the reference standard. In addition, the agreement between the two tests was examined.
