    CLINICAL CASES

“Gloves and socks” syndrome caused by parvovirus B19

Cecchi R., Bartoli L., Brunetti L., Pavesi M., Giomi A.

U.S.L. 3, U.O. Dermatologia Spedali Riuniti di Pistoia

The “gloves and socks” syndrome is a recently described acute and febrile dermatosis, which is characterized by a papulopetechial rash on the extremities in a typical “gloves and socks” distribution. Although several viruses have been involved as etiological agents for this syndrome, parvovirus B19 is the most common. The case of a 30-year-old patient presenting a typical erythematous and edematous eruption with purpura, localized on the hands and feet, associated with malaise, fever and sore throat is reported. In addition, there was a petechial enanthema on the palate and aphthous ulcers. The dermatosis resolved spontaneously within two weeks. Serologic investigations and PCR findings showed a primary infection due to parvovirus B19 in our patient.
