Overview


What is EBV VCA IgG?

The Epstein Barr Virus Viral Capsid Antigen (EBV-VCA) Antibody IgG Test is a clinical test performed to diagnose an infectious mononucleosis disease, and to differentiate between an EBV infection and others when similar symptoms appear.


Why is EBV VCA IgG done?

The EBV-VCA test is performed when symptoms of mononucleosis appear without a positive mononucleosis test, including:

•    Sore throat

•    Headache

•    Fever

•    Swollen lymph glands

The test is also performed in pregnant women showing symptoms similar to flu.
