Abstract

Congenital parvovirus infection has a diverse presentation ranging from asymptomatic infants to intrauterine demise secondary to red cell aplasia or myocarditis. Treatment is aimed at correcting anemia with intrauterine and postnatal transfusions. We report a case of fetal hydrops with severe atrioventricular regurgitation and myocardial dysfunction secondary to parvovirus infection in a preterm infant. Myocarditis and myocardial dysfunction responded to immunoglobulin administration.
