Epstein-Barr virus is known to infect smooth-muscle cells in patients who are immunocompromised, including patients after transplantation and those with acquired human immunodeficiency syndrome. Infection can result in Epstein-Barr virus related smooth-muscle tumors, which most commonly arise in the soft tissues, liver, and adrenal glands. Although CNS involvement is rare, it is important to understand the unique imaging and pathologic features of Epstein-Barr virus smooth-muscle tumors of the CNS.
