The literature of PV-B19 infection with a growing number of publications has reported its association with erythema infectiosum in children, transient aplastic crisis in persons with high red cell turnover, chronic pure red cell (PRC) aplasia in primary or secondary immunocompromised patients, hydrops fetalis with infection during pregnancy, and arthropathy, mostly in females.
