Fetal parvovirus syndrome
Synonyms: Mother-to-child transmission of parvovirus syndrome | Parvovirus antenatal infection
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.
