||Human parvovirus B19 infection in healthcare workers
||Apr. 1995, Vol.45, No.2, p.93-96. 25 ref.
||The occurrence of human parvovirus B19 infection in seven hospital health care workers is reported. The clinical presentation mimicked that of rubella and the diagnosis was made by the detection of human parvovirus B19 IgM antibody in blood samples taken from the affected workers. The importance of accurate diagnosis of B19 infection is discussed since this virus has been implicated in causing or exacerbating a variety of medical conditions. The need to make health care workers aware of the importance of this infection is stressed.
