My daughter has been having pain in her left side; possibly spleen, bruise, pulled muscle, not sure. Her doctor had thought maybe she had Mono or Epstein Barr Virus, so she tested her on Thursday (results won't be back until Monday). Thursday night her pain was so bad in her left side, just under her ribs that we took her to the ER. The tests they took showed negative results for Strep and Mono. Can Epstein Barr Virus cause a ruptured spleen like Mono can???

I actually just got over Mono, The spleen won't rupture unless a hard hit to the left side or way too much pressure is put on it. I don't know if it works the same way as EPV though, you should look EPV up on Google and see what the symptoms are of it and what not to do.

Hi there,

If mononucleosis is cause by Epstein-Barr virus, it can cause the spleen to get enlarged.  If the spleen ruptures you experience a sharp and sudden pain in the upper-left side of the abdomen. You have to know if the spleen has ruptured your daughter would need an immediate surgery. You have to know that in younger children EBV test can show false negative results and sometimes it is necessary to undergo for more antibody test.

Have you got the results from the first tests? You also mention pulled muscle. How long is she experiencing pain? Pulled muscle should be good in few days without any bigger treatment. And this should not be as big problem as Epstein-Barr virus.

 

Best regards,

Danella
