Infection with human parvovirus B19 (PVB 19) is a relatively rare disease with various clinical manifestations, the most common of which is infectious erythema. PVB 19 is also an etiologic factor of arthritis, chronic anemia
and hydrops fetalis in ca. 5% of infected pregnancies. It is also responsible for aplastic crises in patients with congenital hemolytic anemias and those treated with immunosuppressants. Hematological complications
after parvovirus B19 infections are rare in subjects, and especially in children, with no history of the aforementioned disorders. Therefore, we present such a case below.
