Fifth disease also known as Slapped Cheek Syndrome is a mild and common illness in children that is caused by a virus called Human Parvovirus B19. The medical name for Fifth Disease is "erythema infectiosum (EI)".

Symptoms and signs include a rash as if the face has been slapped. In North America, the disease has been referred to as slapped cheek syndrome or as "slapcheek". Parvovirus infection is a common and highly contagious childhood ailment.  It was one of five common childhood illnesses characterized by a rash and therefore named "Fifth Disease". The name Fifth Disease comes from a classification system developed in the 1890's but it is no longer used. It was the fifth in a list of the five most common rashes of childhood and acquired this name.

This infection occurs primarily in school-aged children between 5 and 14 years of age during winter and spring. In most children, parvovirus infection is mild and requires little treatment.

However, in some adults, the infection can be serious. Parvovirus infection in some pregnant women can lead to serious health problems for the fetus. Parvovirus infection is also more serious for people with some kinds of anemia or who have a compromised immune system.

  • The virus is thought to spread via droplets in the air as respiratory secretions transmitted by coughs and sneezesor by blood from other infected people. Early during the illness, nasal secretions contain the viral DNA. Blood has been found to contain viral particles as well as DNA.

  • Cases of Fifth Disease can occur either sporadically or as part of community outbreaks.

  • Outbreaks occur mainly in elementary schools during the spring.

  • Half of the cases occur from spread of the virus to others in the patient's household. Transmission of the infection in schools is less common.

  • At least half of North American adults have been infected by parvovirus B19 and are unlikely to be reinfected.

  • About 10% or fewer of young children are immune.

  • People with this illness are contagious before the onset of symptoms and are probably not contagious after they develop the rash.

  • The incubation period (the time from acquiring the infection to the development of symptoms) usually lasts between 4 and 21 days.
