Abstract/OtherAbstract:
During a large outbreak of erythema infectiosum in 1987 in Toyama prefecture, Japan, a 32-year-old woman acquired a mild rash on her arms and legs at 18 weeks of gestation. At 26 weeks and 4 days of gestation, the fetus died by hydrops fetalis and pregnancy was terminated. Histological studies of the fetus revealed degeneration of erythroblastic cells in the liver and bone marrow. Extensive extramedullary hematopoiesis and hemosiderin deposits were observed in the liver. Antibody response to human parvovirus B19 virus was demonstrated in maternal sera by ELISA. Furthermore, dot hybridization with the molecularly cloned DNA probe revealed the presence of human parvovirus DNA sequence in the fetal liver, spleen, lung, kidney and placenta. This report describes the first case in Japan of hydrops fetalis caused by human parvovirus B19 infection.
