Transfusion News Video Addresses RHD genotyping for obstetric patients with a serologic weak D phenotype

The September 15th video discusses patients that have a weak D phenotype for their Rh blood group antigen. Since the introduction of Rh immunoprophylaxis to prevent maternal-fetal alloimmunization, rates of severe and fatal hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn have dramatically declined. Although laboratory practices in the United States are not consistent, blood donors and newborns with a serologic weak D phenotype are often classified as RhD-positive, while pregnant females with this same phenotype are treated as RhD-negative to avoid alloimmunization.
