In a prospective study to determine the prevalence of parvovirus B19 in adult patients positive for the human immunodeficiency virus, a series of 55 consecutively presenting patients was tested for antibodies to parvovirus B19 and parvovirus B19 DNA. Specific IgG antibodies were detected in 96% of cases; specific IgM antibodies were present in 10%. Viral DNA was not detected in any of the sera analysed by polymerase chain reaction. Anemia could not be correlated with the presence of either IgG… CONTINUE READING
