Authors: Su CC, Hsu TC, Hsiao CH, Chiu CC, Tzang BS Abstract Human parvovirus B19 (B19V) infection has symptoms similar to those of anti‑phospholipid syndrome (APS). Antibodies against B19V‑VP1 unique region (VP1u) exhibit activity similar to that of anti‑phospholipid antibodies (aPLs) by inducing vascular endothelial cell adhesion factors and APS‑like syndrome. Previous studies have identified an effect of aPLs on angiogenesis. However, little is understood regarding the effect of anti‑B19V‑VP1u antibodies on angiogenesis. The present study investigated the effects of anti‑B19V‑VP1u ...

ConclusionsB19V ‐PCR positivity was high and similar in both cases and controls. In our study B19V‐DNAemia was thus not seen to be associated with fatal outcome of pregnancy. The clinical significance of B19V‐DNA detection during pregnancy is uncertain. Caution is needed when diagnosing a B19V‐infection bas ed only on B19V‐DNAemia.

ConclusionCardiotropic viruses (HHV6, Parvovirus B19 and Coxsackie virus) were found in almost 50% of cases in “infarct like” acute myocarditis. According the presence or absence of cardiotropic viruses, CMR parameters were different. Furthermore, use of quantitative PCR (detection of viral genomes) or detection of viral DNA and RNA via in situ hybridization would be a challenge for the future identification of viruses in myocarditis.

nte Murillo Minguito de Ory The aim of this study is to evaluate the performance characteristics of the LIAISON XL Zika Capture IgM II. For this purpose we tested 128 samples obtained from recent infections caused by the Zika (ZIKV; 74 samples), dengue (DENV; 10 samples), chikungunya (CHIK V; 11 samples), rubella (RUBV; 10 samples) and measles (MeV; 10 samples) viruses, as well as human parvovirus B19 (HPVB19; 13 samples). The results of the assay under evaluation are compared with those obtained from an indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) assay, and the discrepancies are resolved by considering other laborator...

Abstract Cutavirus is a new member of the Parvoviridae family. It was first discovered in 2016 through unbiased metagenomics performed on fecal samples collected from patients with diarrhea, and also in skin biopsies collected from patients with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL, also known as mycosis fungoides). We have systematically reviewed the literature to describe the discovery, genomic organization, prevalence, and geographic distribution of cutavirus.

Five sudden deaths occurred between 3 July and 21 August, 2005, none of which were necropsied, however two of the horses showed clinical signs compatible with hepatic encephalopathy prior to death. No horse on the farm had received a biologic product of equine blood origin in...

AbstractTORCH, as coined by Nahmias et al. consists of Toxoplasmosis, other infections (includes, syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis viruses, varicella virus and Parvovirus B19), Rubella, Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and Herpes simplex virus. These infections are transmitted prenatally, perinatally, and postnatally through transplacental passage, contact with blood and vaginal secretions or from exposure to breast milk for CMV, HIV and HSV and infection generally manifests at birth, in infancy or in later years of life. The disease burden is maximum in low to middle-income countries. As treatment and prevention strategies are available for...

We present a case of a patient with chronic tenosynovitis in the 4th extensor tendon compartment. With unremarkable anamnesis and due to normal laboratory results a «seronegative (RF), ACPA (CCP)-negative tenosynovitis without arthritis» had been reported. Diagnostic and therapeutic tenosynovectomy was performed. Histologic processing revealed a positive PCR for parvovirus B19. We discuss articular and extraarticular manifestations. A parvovirus B19-associated manifestation in the musculoskeletal system is usually self-limiting. The therapy should be carried out symptomatically. In our patient there was a marke...
