Persistent parvovirus infection

Common Name(s)

Persistent parvovirus infection

Persistent parvovirus infections occur when the parvovirus infects a person's body for an extended period of time with no effective immune response. In other words, the body's cells respond to the viral infection but cannot get rid of it. Parvovirus is highly contagious in children and causes a distinctive rash on the face of infected kids. Non-persistent (acute) infections in children do not last very long and the associated rash can be treated at home with over the counter anti-rash remedies. Adults may also get parvovirus but their symptoms are usually limited to joint pain and immobility. Currently, there is no ideal treatment for persistent parvovirus infections in children or adults.
