Cases of this rash were first reported in 1992 by Bodemer et al, and a year later, Taieb et al reported new cases, establishing the term "asymmetric periflexural exanthem." (1,2) Several viruses have been related to APEC (including adenovirus, parvovirus B19, parainfluenza 2 and 3, and human herpesvirus 7), but none of these has been consistently associated with the rash.
