We currently have a 50 year old male in house that had an accident that damaged his foot 3 weeks ago. He arrived septic and has had to have an amputation. His ABO/Rh gives a B pos with a 4+ anti-D. His gel screen and panel give 1+ results that match up with an anti-D (all others rules out). His autocontrol was positive at 1+ by IgG, neg for compliment. The eluate results matched the original antibody ID. Presently this patient's specimen is on its way to our reference lab. Previous history at another facility lists him as B Pos, screen negative. As far as we know, he has never been transfused. What are the possibilities (for what appears to be an D auto antibody), and how should he be treated? Scott
