Abstract

The overall prevalence of non-Rh-D isoimmunization seems to lie between 0.15% and 1.1%. Anti-Rh(c) alloimmunization, "little c," occurs in 0.07% of pregnancies and shows a quite broad clinical presentation. Late anemia is a frequent problem occurring in the setting of isoimmunization. It occurs more frequently after intrauterine blood transfusions or exsanguinotransfusion, and it can be thought as a hyporegenerative anemia. The authors describe the use of human recombinant erythropoietin in preventing late anemia in a case of anti-Rh(c) isoimmunization. The use of human recombinant erythropoietin is a valid tool for preventing late-onset anemia due to either anti-Rh-D or non-anti-Rh-D isoimmunization.
