The papular-purpuric gloves-and-socks syndrome (PPGSS) is a disease characterized by an itching erythema and edema of the hands and feet, oral mucosal lesions and fever. It may be caused by various agents. Parvovirus B19 has been implicated as the etiological factor in most cases. Here we report a case of PPGSS in a nine-year-old previously healthy girl with papular and petechial lesions on her peroral area and trunk, and primarily on the dorsal areas of her hands and feet. Serologic study confirmed the acute infection by parvovirus B19. We believe that our case is worthy of particular attention because of the rarity of the disease in the pediatric age group and because it is the first documented case of PPGSS in Turkey.
