    Parvovirus B19 infections occur fairly frequently in children, and the most common clinical picture is erythema infectiosum. In patients with an underlying heniolytic disorder, this can cause a transient aplastic crisis. In recipients of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (SCT) and in other...

    Human parvovirus B19 is a single-stranded DNA virus. During pregnancy, parvovirus B19 infection can be asymptomatic or cause a variety of signs of fetal damage, fetal anemia, nonimmune hydrops fetalis, spontaneous abortion and can result in fetal death. Recent improvements in diagnosing...

    Hepatitis-associated aplastic anemia is rare in general, but occurs in up to 28% of patients receiving liver transplantation for fulminant non-A, non-B hepatitis. Cases are commonly young men with mild hepatitis but severe aplastic anemia. Although cases have been reported in association with...

    Background: Parvovirus B19 presents tropism for human erythroid progenitor cells, causing chronic anemia in organ transplant recipients, due to their suppressed humoral and cellular responses. Diagnosis may be achieved through serological tests for detection of anti-B19 antibodies. However,...

    Parvovirus B19 induced acute hepatitis and hepatic failure have been previously reported, mainly in children. Very few cases of parvovirus induced hepatic failure have been reported in adults and fewer still have required liver transplantation. We report the case of a 55-year-old immunocompetent...
