GARATE, Gabriela et al. Systemic lupus erythematosus and parvovirus. Causal relationship?: Case report. Rev. argent. reumatolg. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.36-38. ISSN 0327-4411.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease of unknown etiology that affects genetically predisposed individuals. It is triggered by hormonal, estrogenic, environmental and viral factors such as hepatitis B/C, cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes or parvovirus B19 (PVB19). PVB19 can affect different organs and present clinical and immunological diseases, as well as those observed in patients with SLE. Immunological alterations have been described in up to 79% of patients with infection associated with PVB19, mainly positivization of antinuclear antibodies (ANA).

Keywords : systemic lupus erythematosus; parvovirus B19.
