Anti-PP1P(k) is a rare, biphasic antibody with the ability to cause immediate hemolytic transfusion reactions and early spontaneous abortions. The antibody is formed by individuals with the p phenotype. A blood donor with anti-PP1P(k) and the p phenotype was identified through routine donor screening. A sister was found to also be p phenotype. At that time, the sister was 24weeks pregnant. Subsequently, the original blood donor became pregnant. Both individuals were followed throughout their pregnancies and delivered infants without complications from anti-PP1P(k) antibodies. The literature regarding anti-PP1P(k), the p phenotype, and recurrent pregnancy loss in this setting is reviewed.
