The number of conditions associated with EBV is increasing as
molecular techniques for detection of this virus are becoming more
sophisticated. In addition to the acute manifestation of infection,
infectious mononucleosis, the following chronic or long-term conditions
have been associated with EBV:

   Burkitt's lymphoma
   Nasopharyngeal carcinoma
   Hodgkin's disease
   Post-transplant B lymphoproliferative disorders
   Peripheral T cell lymphomas
   Gastric lymphoma

A number of other conditions, particularly neoplasms, have also been
associated with EBV infection, but evidence for an aetiological role
is less certain.
