Abstract

Parvovirus B19 generally infects children and young adults, presenting characteristic rashes such as erythema infectiosum. Among the hemorrhagic manifestations with purpuric-petechial eruption is the papular purpuric socks and gloves syndrome. Occasionally, atypical distributions with asymmetric petechial rashes could complicate the diagnosis leading to differential diagnoses and laboratory tests. We describe an unusual case of parvovirus B19 with atypical petechial rash, and a recent literature review is reported.
