abstract

  • Persistent B19 infection may be of pathogenetic importance in certain prototypic CTD syndromes, to which underlying immune dysregulation associated with a blunted IgM response to viral antigen may predispose. Anti-viral therapy might be worthy of consideration since traditional immunosuppressive therapy was unsuccessful in our cases.
