Fetal parvovirus syndrome

What is Fetal parvovirus syndrome?

Foetal parvovirus syndrome is a foetopathy likely to occur when a pregnant woman is infected by parvovirus B19. In adults, the virus causes a butterfly erythema infectiosum (also called Fifth Disease; 'slapped cheek disease') and flu-like symptoms with symmetric polyarthralgias, which usually do not warrant prenatal diagnosis.
