Increased incidence of acute parvovirus B19 infections in Marseille, France, in 2012 compared with the 2002–2011 period

Abstract

Human parvovirus B19 occurs worldwide and causes mild or asymptomatic disease in the form of cyclic local epidemics usually occurring in late winter and early summer. In 2012, a dramatic increase in cases was observed in the Public hospitals system of Marseille, with a total of 53 cases reported. Here, we describe the characteristics of this outbreak and compare it with the local epidemiology of B19V infections observed during the 2002–2011 period.
