Abstract

A teenage primigravida with no prior history of transfusion presented with anti-D, anti-C, and anti-E in her serum and subsequently developed anti-Fy(a). The infant had hemolytic disease of the newborn. The antibodies were provoked by the girl's self-injection of her partner's blood for emotional gratification. Clinicians and transfusion services should be aware that hemolytic disease of the newborn in a first pregnancy can be caused by self-inflicted maternal immunization. Close communication between clinicians and transfusion service is emphasized.
