Parvovirus Infection Triggering Still’s Disease
KeywordsParvovirus B19, adult-onset Still's disease, systemic inflammatory response
We present the case of a 59-year-old man with acute B19 parvovirus infection who developed a systemic inflammatory reaction similar to adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). We discuss the clinical challenge due to overlapping symptoms to distinguish between a primary B19 viral infection and the autoimmune disease it can trigger.
