Answer

Associations between human PV-B19 infection and encephalitis, neuropathies, myocarditis, nephritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Henoch-Schönlein purpura, pseudoerysipelas-like eruption, and rheumatoid arthritis have been described. Many of these associations, however, have not been validated. [18, 19]
