Resumen

ALFONSO DAVILA, Antonio et al. Hemolytic disease of the newborn due to Duffy incompatibility: a case report . Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2008, vol.80, n.2. ISSN 0034-7531.

Duffy antigens may be detected in the fetus at 6 or 7 weeks of gestation and be well developed at birth. Despite its early expression, the hemolytic disease due to Duffy blood group incompatibility is rare. The case of a newborn with hemolytic disease caused by Duffy incompatibility is presented. For its treatment, it was used phototherapy combined with a hemotherapeutic procedure: exanguinotransfusion. Although the incompatibility produced by this blood group system is usually moderate, one should be alert to the occurrence of a conflict with unusual course in order to apply an optimum treatment at the right time and to reduce the morbidity of this disease.

Palabras clave : Hemolytic disease; newborn infant; indirect bilirubin; direct and indirect Coombs; erythrocyte panel; exanguinotransfusion.
