abstract

  • This is the first documentation of B19 localization to dermal and glomerular capillary endothelium in HSP. It is important to recognize parvovirus B19-associated adult HSP cases, as the treatment of choice is intravenous gamma globulin in concert with anti-TNFalpha therapy. In contrast immunosuppressive therapy may lead to a persistent and/or worsening disease course.
