Detection of parvovirus antibodies is useful in diagnosing erythema infectiosum, parvovirus B19 aplastic crisis, and other parvovirus related diseases.
Reference value is negative for IgG and IgM. The presence of IgM indicates recent infection. The presence of IgG antibodies is suggestive of past exposure.
Specimen requirement is one SST tube of blood.
