Antibody prevalence to B19 virus in Japan was previously reported with 1973 and 1984 serum collections. Since then we have had two big epidemics of erythema infectiosum in Japan: 1986-87 and 1991-92. In an attempt to estimate how much those epidemics have affected seroprevalence to B19 virus infection, we studied seroepidemiology in three separate areas… CONTINUE READING
