In sickle cell anemia, erythrocyte membrane defects, red cell enzyme defects, thalassemia, and acquired hemolytic anemia result in stressed erythrocyte production as in hemorrhage, iron deficiency anemia and bone marrow transplantation, in which there may be a red cell hemolytic process, and the preceding PV infection can present with transient aplastic crisis (38), (39), (47).
In sickle cell disease and other hereditary and acquired hemolytic anemias, acute B19 infection results in transient aplastic crisis, in which hemoglobin levels fall precipitously, anemia becomes life threatening, and congestive heart failure may ensue.
