Hemolytic disease of the newbornalso known as hemolytic disease of the fetus and newbornHDNHDFNor erythroblastosis fetalis is an alloimmune condition that develops in a peripartum fetuswhen the IgG molecules one of the five main types of antibodies produced by the mother pass through the placenta. Among these antibodies are some which attack antigens on the red blood cells in the fetal circulationbreaking down and destroying the cells hemolysis.
The fetus can develop reticulocytosis and anemia. This fetal disease ranges from mild to very severe, and fetal death from heart failure hydrops fetalis can occur. When the disease is moderate or severe, many erythroblasts immature red blood cells are present in the fetal blood, and so these forms of the disease can be called erythroblastosis fetalis or erythroblastosis foetalis. HDFN represents a breach of immune privilege for the fetus or some other form of impairment of the immune tolerance of pregnancy.
Various types of HDFN are classified by which alloantigen provokes the response.
Signs of hemolytic disease of the newborn include a positive direct Coombs test also called direct agglutination testelevated cord bilirubin levels, and hemolytic anemia. It is possible for a newborn with this disease to have neutropenia and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia as well.
Hemolysis leads to elevated bilirubin levels. After delivery bilirubin is no longer cleared feta, the placenta from the neonate’s blood and the symptoms of jaundice yellowish skin and yellow discoloration of the whites of the eyes, or icterus increase within 24 hours after birth. Like other forms of severe neonatal eritroblastossithere is the possibility of the neonate developing acute or chronic kernicterushowever the risk of kernicterus in HDN is higher because of the rapid and massive destruction of blood cells.
It is important to note that isoimmunization is a risk factor for neurotoxicity and lowers the level at which kernicterus can occur.
HDN can be the cause of hydrops fetalisan often-severe form of prenatal heart failure that causes fetal edema. Similar conditions include acquired hemolytic anemiacongenital toxoplasmacongenital syphilis infection, congenital obstruction of the bile ductand cytomegalovirus CMV infection.
Antibodies are produced when the body is exposed to an antigen foreign to the make-up of the body. If a mother is exposed to a foreign antigen and produces IgG as opposed to IgM which does not cross the placentathe IgG will target the antigen, if erifroblastosis in the fetus, and may affect it in utero and persist after delivery.

The three most common models in which a woman becomes sensitized toward i. Fetal-maternal hemorrhagewhich is the movement of fetal blood cells across the placenta, can occur during abortionectopic pregnancychildbirthruptures in the placenta during pregnancy often caused by traumaor medical procedures carried out during pregnancy that breach the uterine wall.
In subsequent pregnancies, if there is a similar incompatibility in the fetus, these antibodies are then able to cross the placenta into the fetal bloodstream to attach to the red blood cells and cause their destruction hemolysis.
The amount of fetal blood needed to cause maternal sensitization depends on the individual’s immune system and ranges from 0. The woman may have received a therapeutic blood transfusion. ABO blood group system and the D antigen of the Rhesus Rh blood group system typing are routine prior to transfusion. Suggestions have been made that women of child-bearing age or young girls should not be given a transfusion with Rhc-positive blood or Kell 1 -positive blood to avoid possible sensitization, but this would strain the resources of blood transfusion services, and it is currently considered uneconomical to screen for these blood groups.
HDFN can also be caused by antibodies to a variety of other blood group system antigens, but Kell and Rh are the most frequently encountered. The third sensitization model can occur in women of blood type O. The immune response to A and B antigens, that are widespread in the environment, usually leads to the production of IgM or IgG anti-A and anti-B antibodies early in life. For unknown reasons, the incidence of maternal antibodies against type A and B antigens of the IgG type that could potentially cause hemolytic disease of the newborn is greater than the observed incidence of “ABO disease.
In contrast to antibodies to A and B antigens, Rhesus antibodies are generally not produced from exposure to environmental antigens. The diagnosis of HDN is based on history and laboratory findings:. Types of HDN are classified by the type of antigens involved. ABO hemolytic disease of the newborn can range from mild to severe, but generally it is a mild disease.

It can be caused by anti-A and anti-B antibodies. Rhesus D hemolytic disease of the newborn often called Rh disease is the most common form of severe HDN. Rhesus c hemolytic disease of the newborn can range from a mild to severe disease – is the third most common form of severe HDN. Combinations of antibodies, for example, anti-Rhc and anti-RhE occurring together can be especially severe. Anti-Kell hemolytic disease of the newborn is most commonly caused by anti-K 1 antibodies, the second most common form of severe HDN.
Over half of the cases of anti-K 1 related HDN are caused by multiple blood transfusions.
Antibodies to the other Kell antigens are rare. In cases of Rho D incompatibility, Rho D immunoglobulin is given to prevent sensitization.

However, there is no comparable immunotherapy available for other blood group incompatibilities. Rhesus-negative mothers who are pregnant with a rhesus-positive infant are offered Rho D immune globulin RhIG, or RhoGam at 28 weeks during pregnancy, at 34 weeks, and within 48 hours after delivery to prevent sensitization to the D antigen.
Eritroblastoais works by binding any fetal red blood cells with the D antigen before the mother is able to produce an immune response and form anti-D IgG. In some cases, the direct Coombs will be negative but severe, even fatal HDN can occur. Once a woman has antibodies, she is at high risk for a future transfusion reaction if she is in need of a blood transfusion. The absence of antibodies however does not preclude a woman from having a transfusion reaction:.
Immune-mediated hemolytic transfusion reactions caused by immunoglobulin M IgM anti-A, anti-B, or anti-A,B typically result in severe, potentially fatal complement-mediated intravascular hemolysis.
Immune-mediated hemolytic reactions caused by IgG, Rh, Kell, Duffy, or other non-ABO antibodies typically result in extravascular sequestration, shortened survival of transfused red cells, and relatively mild clinical reactions.
Acute hemolytic transfusion reactions due to immune hemolysis may occur in patients who have no antibodies detectable by routine laboratory procedures. For a summary of transfusion reactions in the US, see reference. Inthe incidence of Rh D sensitization in the United States was 6. Hemolytic disease of the newborn is most commonly seen in kittens where it is known as “fading kitten syndrome” and foals. It has also been reported in puppies. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
