Clinical features of infectious mononucleosis in case of primary infection and its revivification have been revealed. The evaluation of intensity of autosensibilization processes has been performed. The interrelation of autoimmune and cytokine reactions and their participation in formation of organopathology in case of Epstein-Barr viral infection are demonstrated.
