Anti-c Antibodies Causing Neonatal Hyperbilirubinaemia - A Case Report
Haemolytic disease of a newbornis a heterogenous disease that ranges from jaundice to erythroblastosis foetalis and kernicterus. We present a case of a neonate who developed jaundice on day 3 of life which was progressive despite the use of intensive double surface phototherapy and finally required double volume exchange transfusion for management. The neonate was found to have minor blood group incompatibility. Anti-c antibodies were detected in the neonateâ€™s blood.
