The correct answer is C.
Erythema infectiosum or "slapped cheek syndrome" is caused by parvovirus B19, and may cause aplastic anemia in some individuals - particularly children with other hematologic abnormalities. While some of the answer choices may be seen with sickle-cell anemia, the patient’s current disease is due to parvovirus B19.
