We reported a case of lung cancer with polyarthropathy induced by human parvovirus B19. A 60-year-old female with lung cancer was admitted to our hospital with polyarthropathy similar to rheumatoid arthritis. Although the abnormal accumulation of 99mTc-MDP in the bone scan film and rheumatoid factor positive were detected before operation, we diagnosed polyarthropathy induced by parvovirus B19 through the detection of parvovirus B19 IgM and B19 DNA. The joint pain gradually improved after surgical treatment for lung cancer.
