Massive fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH) occurs in approximately 1:1,000 deliveries. In most cases, the cause is not identified. The clinical manifestations and the prognosis of a FMH depend on the volume of the hemorrhage and the rapidity with which it has occurred. We describe two cases of chronic massive fetomaternal hemorrhage with favorable outcome. During the follow-up, both infants showed late-onset neutropenia, which was not previously reported in healthy, growing infants with history of massive FMH.
