Abstract: Erythema infectiosum (fifth disease) is a common benign pediatric condition caused by BI9 parvovirus. It can be identified clinically by a "slapped cheek" appearance that is often followed by reticulated exanthem on the trunk and extremities. This case report provides a concise overview of erythema infectiosum in a 7 year old girl child who presented with a fairly prominent classic rash and generalized symptoms.


Keywords: Erythema infectiosum, slapped cheek, generalized symptoms.
