Erythroblastosis Fetalis (ABO Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn) Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Erythroblastosis fetalis is due to maternal-fetal incompatibility with respect to an antigen of the ABO blood group; the fetus possesses A or B antigen which is lacking in the mother, and the mother produces immune antibody which causes hemolysis (breakdown) of fetal red blood cells. This is not necessarily fatal, but it may require treatment by blood transfusion.
