    Hi Meg,

    I know that there is a school of thought that believes that Lupus may be caused by Parvo Virus, is a trigger for Lupus and/or that the Parvo Virus itself actually mimics lupus. There is no hard evidence that I know of that this is the case but I do know that research is being done in this area. Sorry I don't have more information

    I read this case study in the oxford journals (a few times due to it not being in lamen's terms! haha) and it has a little info about some correlation. I think due to immnosuppressants or our compromised immune sytstems, some patients were shown to be infected.
