In brief: E B Virus

Yes it causes mono and , it is also assciated with a particular cancer hodgkin lymphoma, burkitts lymphoma, nasopharyngeal lymphoma and central nervous system lymphomas associated with hiv.
There is some evidence that this virus is also associated with higher risk of auto immune diseases like dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rhematoid arthritis and sjogrens syndrome and multiple sclerosis.
