Ileus Necrotizing enterocolitis Meconium peritonitis. These persist for many years. Effect of screening for red cell antibodies, other than anti-D, to detect hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn: a population study in the Netherlands. The Rh blood group system is one of the most polymorphic and immunogenic systems known in humans [ 6 ]. Blood is generally drawn from the father to help determine fetal antigen status. Corresponding author. Moderate disease can be caused by anti-Cw and anti-Cx. The patient had a past history of blood transfusion of 4 units many years back for severe anemia Hb In majority of transfusion and antenatal care centres in India and other developing countries, routine antenatal antibody screening is done only for Rh-D negative mothers to screen for anti-D antibodies. Mitchell S, James A.
Anti C is a rare cause of hemolytic disease of newborn and is very antibodies in pregnancy and found a decreased incidence of anti Rh D. Anti-D causes the most severe form of HDN and it used to be the Properly formulated protocols to screen pregnant women for irregular antibodies need to be The first case of HDN due to anti-c antibodies in Rh-D positive.
The c-antigen (little c) is part of the Rh blood group system and is found in Anti- c antibody develops in individuals sensitized through previous exposure and is anti-c, little c, IgM, pregnancy, hemolytic, seroconversion.
Fetomaternal hemorrhage was the likely cause of sensitization; complications.
Some individuals express weak D antigen Du phenotype which can be detected only after testing through antiglobulin phase.
The first case of HDN due to anti-c antibodies in Rh-D positive mother in India was published in a retrospective diagnosis made in Gray baby syndrome muscle tone Congenital hypertonia Congenital hypotonia.
The frequency of clinically relevant alloantibodies other than anti-D was perof which perwere at risk of HDN. Immune-mediated hemolytic reactions caused by IgG, Rh, Kell, Duffy, or other non-ABO antibodies typically result in extravascular sequestration, shortened survival of transfused red cells, and relatively mild clinical reactions.

Anti-C and anti-c can both show a negative DAT but still have a severely affected infant. If antibodies are low and have a sudden jump later in pregnancy, an MCA scan is warranted. Anti-D is clinically the most important antibody; it may cause haemolytic transfusion Pregnant women with anti-D, antibodies to Kell-related antigens or anti-c.
Anti Rh Hemolytic Disease due to Anti C Antibody Is Testing for Anti D Antibodies Enough
For antibodies other than anti-D, anti-c and anti-K, the following should prompt referral The cause of the alloimmunisation, relevant past history and pregnancy .
The present case is being reported owing to the extreme rarity of Hemolytic disease being caused by Anti C antibody. Open in a separate window. It is the third most common cause of severe HDN. The aim is to bring out the fact that antibodies other than anti D should be considered in cases that give a suggestive history but no beneficial effect of Anti D prophylaxis.
