Fetal anaemia can by treated by in-utero therapy, which results in a significant improvement in perinatal outcome. The important causes of fetal anaemia are rhesus alloimmunisation, kell alloimmunisation and parvovirus infection. At-risk pregnancies require serial monitoring to ensure timely intervention with intrauterine transfusion. Non-invasive testing with middle cerebral artery Doppler is becoming the monitoring modality of choice.
