what exactly is parvo virus
Response from Dr. Feinberg
The B19 strain of parvovirus causes an infection that is asociated with low red blood cell counts (anemia), especially in people with daged immune systems. Parvovirus infections are not limited to HIV+ people-- they commonly occur in HIV- children, but do not cause serious disease.
