We describe 3 patients who presented with a distinctive clinical picture of the purpuric rash called “gloves-and-socks syndrome” which was characterized by an acral distribution of the rash that involved not only the distal part of the extremities but also the chin and perioral area. Serologic analysis for parvovirus B19 yielded positive results. Parvovirus B19 should be included in the evaluation of febrile purpura.
