ABSTRACT

A gravida 1, para O, 17-year-old black female was found on prenatal testing to be group O, Du+, the latter test showing many unagglutinated cells. Because of the mixed-field appearance, the patient was thought initially to have bad a fetal-maternal hemorrhage. Additional red cell typings were performed, but no other apparent mixed-field reactions were observed. The Kleihauer-Betke test and hemoglobin electrophoresis indicated that the mixed-field agglutination was not due to a fetal-maternal hemorrhage. Thus, the finding of a mixed-field D typing could be explained best by a weak D antigen.
