Background: My interest in differentiating between persistent and self-limiting synovitis (PS and SLS) developed from the Bath experience, where Professor Bacon and Dr Blake ran an early synovitis clinic. A proportion of the patients were noted (in an epidemic year) to have had Human Parvovirus B19 (B19) infection coinciding with the start of their synovitis (White DG et al. Lancet 1985; 1; 419-22). A minority of the B19 patients had persisting symptoms a year later adding to speculation on the possible role of viruses in the aetiology of chronic rheumatic diseases.
