BACKGROUND: ABO hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (ABO HDFN) may manifest itself in cases of mothers belonging to blood group O and newborns of groups A or B and more frequently in group A and less so in group B. CASE STUDY: The case subjects are twin-birth newborns with ABO HDFN, of group AB born to a mother of group O. These cases of ABO HDFN prove inconsistent with Mendel's law of segregation. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: This case study finds its explanation in new methods of assisted reproduction, particularly heterologous in vitro fertilization with ovodonation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: ABO hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (ABO HDFN) may manifest itself in cases of mothers belonging to blood group O and newborns of groups A or B and more frequently in group A and less so in group B. CASE STUDY: The case subjects are twin-birth newborns with ABO HDFN, of group AB born to a mother of group O. These cases of ABO HDFN prove inconsistent with Mendel's law of segregation. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: This case study finds its explanation in new methods of assisted reproduction, particularly heterologous in vitro fertilization with ovodonation.
