Primate erythroparvovirus 1, generally referred to as B19 virus, parvovirus B19 or sometimes erythrovirus B19, was the first (and until 2005 the only) known human virus in the family Parvoviridae, genus Erythroparvovirus; it measures only 23-26 nm in diameter. The name is derived from Latin, parvum meaning small, reflecting the fact that B19 ranks among the smallest DNA viruses The human parvovirus B19 causes parvovirus infection. This is different from the parvovirus seen in dogs and cats, so you can't get the infection from a pet or vice versa. Human parvovirus infection is most common among elementary school-age children during outbreaks in the winter and spring months, but anyone can become ill with it anytime of. Human parvovirus, or parvovirus B19, is a common infectious viral disease that is spread from person to person. Cases of parvovirus infection are more likely to occur in late winter to early spring. Local outbreaks of human parvovirus infection tend to be cyclical. Parvovirus affects people of all ages and ethnic groups SUMMARY Parvovirus B19 (B19) was discovered in 1974 and is the only member of the family Parvoviridae known to be pathogenic in humans. Despite the inability to propagate the virus in cell cultures, much has been learned about the pathophysiology of this virus, including the identification of the cellular receptor (P antigen), and the control of the virus by the immune system Parvovirus B19 has been linked with various clinical syndromes including neurological manifestations. However, its role in the latter remains not completely understood. Although the last 10 years witnessed a surge of case reports on B19-associated neurological aspects, the literature data remains sc
Human parvovirus B19 infections are common. They are usually mild or asymptomatic, and do not require treatment. In some cases, however, infection is associated with sufficiently severe complications that treatment is indicated and may be lifesaving.

Parvovirus B19 is a virus that causes a common childhood illness, also called fifth disease or erythema infectiosum. The virus is found in respiratory droplets during an infection and is easily transmitted to others through close physical contact Human parvovirus B19 is the only parvovirus known to be a human pathogen. The structure of recombinant B19-like particles has been determined to ≈3.5-Å resolution by x-ray crystallography and, to our knowledge, represents the first near-atomic structure of an Erythrovirus . The polypeptide fold of the major capsid protein VP2 is a jelly roll with a β-barrel motif similar to that.

The family Parvoviridae also contains viruses that cause viral infection in animals. The human parvovirus B19 is a small, non-enveloped virus with a linear, single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) genome The B19 virus is the only virus in the parvoviridae family that infects humans (Strauss 271). Its name, ?B19,? refers to the blood bank code of a viremic donor in which it was first observed under the electron microscope (Fields 2364) Human parvovirus B19 (the only known parvovirus to infect humans), is a nonenveloped single-stranded DNA virus that can present with many protean manifestations. It is best known as the etiologic agent in erythema infectiosum or fifth disease, a common exanthematous disease of childhood usually occurring in epidemics in late spring [ 1, 2 ]
Introduction. Human parvovirus B19 (B19) is an erythrovirus that infects human erythroid lineage cells and causes hemolytic anemia or hydrops fetalis (Brown and Young, 1997).The B19 genome includes major open reading frames coding for nonstructural protein NS1 and structural proteins VP1 and VP2 (Shade et al., 1986).The cellular receptor for B19 infection has been identified as P antigen that.

ANNOUNCEMENT. Human parvovirus B19 (B19V) is a member of the genus Erythroparvovirus in the family Parvoviridae ().B19V infection causes erythema infectiosum (fifth disease or slapped cheek syndrome) in children, aplastic crisis in sickle cell disease patients, and hydrops fetalis in pregnant women ().B19V contains a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) genome of approximately 5,600 nucleotides. pathogen in the family, the human parvovirus B19. The virus is most commonly referred to as parvovirus B19, or simply B19. A new genus and name have been proposed for this virus: erythrovirus B19,' based on its cellular tropism for erythroid lineage cells and to distinguish it from the other mammalian parvoviruses Human parvovirus B19 infection is not followed by inflammatory joint disease during long term follow-up.

Parvovirus B19 (B19V) is pathogenic to humans and causes bone marrow failure diseases and various other inflammatory disorders. B19V infection exhibits high tropism for human erythroid progenitor cells (EPCs) in the bone marrow and fetal liver. The exclusive restriction of B19V replication to erythroid lineage cells is partly due to the expression of receptor and co-receptor(s) on the cell.

In healthy individuals, the major presentation of B19 infection is erythema infectiosum. In patients with underlying hemolytic disorders, infection is the primary cause of transient aplastic crisis. In immunosuppressed patients, persistent infection may develop that presents.
Human parvovirus B19 has been linked to a variety of cardiac diseases, as well as to erythema infectiosum, acute arthropathy, and fetal hydrops. A causal association between viral infection and cardiac disease was frequently postulated following the detection of B19 DNA by PCR in endomyocardial biopsy specimens. Since the lifelong persistence of B19 DNA in bone marrow, skin, synovia, tonsils. Parvovirus B19 is the smallest known DNA animal virus, coming in at an itty bitty 18 to 28 nanometers in diameter.. In comparison, the average size of a single human red blood cell is a whopping 7200 nanometers! While it's mostly known for causing fifth disease, or slapped cheek syndrome, in children, parvovirus B19 can also affect adults and it can cause serious illness in individuals.

The positive Primary parvovirus B19 infection is an infrequent, but serious and treatable, cause of chronic anemia in immunocompromised hosts. Many compromised hosts have preexisting antibody to B19 and are not at risk. However, upon primary infection, some patients may be able to mount a sufficient immune response to terminate active parvovirus B19 infection of erythroid precursors Adults developing primary human parvovirus B19 (B19) infection may present with arthralgia, fever, and maculopapular rash. Recovery is linked to the development of specific neutralising antibodies. In immunosuppressed patients, including those with HIV infection, such humoral responses are impaired and severe chronic bone marrow suppression and arthritis may occur
