Abstract

Reactive arthritis (ReA) is a rheumatologic disease characterized by non-purulent arthritis, which occurs 1-4 weeks after gastrointestinal or genitourinary infections. Although mostly caused by bacteria, there are a growing number of viruses that include parvovirus, hepatitis virus, and HIV. Here we report a case of ReA with erythema nodosum that was triggered by parvovirus B19.
