Abstract:
The purpose of this presentation is to describe Rh and ABO incompatibility. This objective is achieved with the aid of clinical subjects, charts, diagrams, and photographs. In this presentation the history of the disease is reviewed first. Three diseases as described by ancient physicians are discussed and related to hemolytic disease of the newborn as we know it today. These include hydrops fetalis, icterus gravis neonatorum and anemia pallida. Rh genetically related antigens are discussed and the pathophysiology of Rh incompatibility is described in detail. The diagnosis of Rh incompatibility is achieved prenatally with blood typing of the mother and father, evaluation of maternal antibodies, and amniocentesis. At birth the Coombs tests, and hemoglobin and bilirubin determinations are performed on the infant. Treatment modalities such as intrauterine transfusion, early delivery, phlebotomy, phototherapy and exchange transfusion are discussed. The prevention of Rh incompatibility through the use of anti-D gamma globulin is discussed briefly. The program then focuses on the problem of ABO incompatibility. The pathogenesis and incidence of this incompatibility are described and theclinical picture is compared to that of an Rh incompatibility.
