Anti f?


Recommended Posts

I have an B Pos prenatal patient who has a positive antibody screen by Capture Solid Phase. Testing shows reactions with rr cells only in both by Capture Solid Phase and IAT with PeG. I'm thinking it is likely to be anti f? Am I on the right track or is there something else I should consider?

Either DcE/DcE or DcE/dcE

Thanks.  That, at least, makes it even more likely.  I would suggest that, at some point, she has either been transfused with blood expressing the RHCE*ce haplotype, or has been pregnant before with a foetus expressing this haplotype.

The good news is that, if it proves to actually be anti-f, it has only ever been implicated in cases of mild, almost sub-clinical, HDFN.
