Rh Isoimmunization Summary

Description: The process by which fetal Rh+ erythrocytes enter the circulation of an Rh- mother, causing her to produce IMMUNOGLOBULIN G antibodies, which can cross the placenta and destroy the erythrocytes of Rh+ fetuses. Rh isoimmunization can also be caused by BLOOD TRANSFUSION with mismatched blood.

Also Known As: Rh Sensitization; Isoimmunization, Rh; Isoimmunizations, Rh; Isoimmunizations, Rhesus; Rh Isoimmunizations Show All >>
