[A case of hemolytic disease in a newborn associated with anti-Wra (WRIGHT) antibodies].

[Article in French]


A french woman delivered a third full-term male baby who had a strongly positive direct antiglobulin test. During the pregnancy and after the delivery, the woman had a negative irregular antibody screening test using standard red blood cell panels. The compatibility testing between the mother's serum and the father's red blood cells was strongly positive and the antibody was identified as an anti-Wra. The baby developed a mild hyperbilirubinemia and recovered without treatment. This child was probably responsible for his mother's immunization since the two previous children were Wra negative and the mother had no history of blood transfusion or abortion.
