Rh disease of Newborn

Posted by e-Medical PPT Sunday, May 16, 2010
Rhesus D Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn  is one of the causes of hemolytic disease of the newborn.The disease ranges from mild to severe. When the disease is mild the fetus may have mild anaemia with reticulocytosis. When the disease is moderate or severe the fetus can have a more marked anaemia and erythroblastosis (erythroblastosis fetalis). When the disease is very severe it can cause morbus haemolyticus neonatorum, hydrops fetalis, or stillbirth.Most Rh disease can be prevented by treating the mother during pregnancy or promptly (within 72 hours) after childbirth. The mother has an intramuscular injection of anti-Rh antibodies commonly known as RhoGAM.
