OBJECTIVE: We describe a 38-year-old woman who presented with a history of inflammatory arthritis, rash, and daily fevers. Human parvovirus B19 causes erythema infectiosum and is associated with arthritis, fetal death, and transient aplastic crisis, as well as persistent infection in immunocompromised persons, in whom it manifests as chronic anemia [ 2 ]. In general the arthritis starts to improve spontaneously by at least 6 weeks, occasionally a little longer. 1 Joint symptoms usually resolve within two weeks; however, 0–17% of patients has chronic arthritis, 2 generally a symmetric polyarthritis that can resemble rheumatoid arthritis.

Human parvovirus B19 is the cause of several distinct clinical syndromes. Treatment of arthritis associated with parvovirus B19 infection is symptomatic, consisting primarily of administration of analgesics and NSAIDs. Recent studies have shown that parvovirus B19 can cause acute arthritis and occasionally a chronic arthropathy, both in children and adults. The arthritis can be debilitating and require prednisone to control symptoms. Some severe cases, however, have been tied to chronic arthritis and even to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.
