    Opportunistic infections such as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia are well-recognised in patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Anaemia due to a variety of causes also occurs in AIDS. Persistent infection with parvovirus (B19) causing severe anaemia has been reported in patients with leukaemia and congenital immunodeficiency.
