Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A Rh negative, pregnant female presented to a major medical center for possible Rh alloimmunization. This female had nine previous pregnancies, including three spontaneous abortions, four live births, and two fetal demises. Because of poor prenatal care, the immunization Rh immune globulin was administered to only the first two pregnancies. After much laboratory testing and treatment, this tenth pregnancy also ended in fetal demise.
