X-Linked Lymphoproliferative Disease (XLP)

XLP affects male children and is characterized by a life-long vulnerability to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a type of herpesvirus that affects approximately 95 percent of U.S. adults and usually does not cause any symptoms other than a brief infection or mononucleosis. Boys with XLP, however, can have severe reactions to EBV infections.
