Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatrics, State University of New York School of Medicine, Buffalo.


Infection due to parvovirus B19 is common and usually resolves over several weeks. Prolonged infection has been reported primarily in immunodeficient hosts. The present report describes a chronic infection in an apparently immunologically healthy woman. The illness was characterized by recurrent episodes of paresthesia without anemia. Laboratory studies demonstrated persistence of parvovirus-specific DNA for nearly 4 years.
