Papulo-purpuric gloves and socks syndrome, a typical maculopurpuric exanthema limited to hands and feet, mainly associated with Parvovirus B19 infection, has not, until now been reported in the literature in relation to pediatric cases in Italy. The case of a 10-year old girl with all the characteristics of the papulo-purpuric gloves and socks syndrome, as well as being IgM positive anti Parvovirus B19, is reported. This syndrome, despite its spontaneous remission, should be included in the differential diagnosis of maculopurpuric exanthemas.
