 chronic Epstein-Barr syndrome?

Could anyone point me towards sources of information about
        "chronic Epstein-Barr syndrome"?

Here is what (I believe) that I know.

Chronic Epstein-Barr syndrome is a post-viral syndrome associated in
particular with the Epstein-Barr virus.  A post-viral syndrome is a set
of neurological symptoms, e.g. forgetfulness and/or mood changes,
following a viral infection, in this case by the Epstein-Barr virus.
After the initial infection, the virus takes up long-term residence in
the nerve cells.

Chronic fatigue syndrome ("yuppie flu") is also supposed by some to be a
post-viral syndrome, although no specific virus has yet been identified
(but recent reports have implicated herpes simplex 6).

The Epstein-Barr virus is related to the herpes virus, and is associated
with lymphoproliferative disorders like mononucleitis (the strongest
association), Burkett's lymphoma and nasal pharyngeal carcinoma.  Most
of the population carries the Epstein-Barr virus; most E-B infections
are not apparent.

I would appreciate any comments, corrections or additional information.
I would especially appreciate references to reliable sources of
