Rh Isoimmunization

The process by which fetal Rh+ erythrocytes enter the circulation of an Rh- mother, causing her to produce IMMUNOGLOBULIN G antibodies, which can cross the placenta and destroy the erythrocytes of Rh+ fetuses. Rh isoimmunization can also be caused by BLOOD TRANSFUSION with mismatched blood.
Also Known As:
Rh Sensitization; Isoimmunization, Rh; Isoimmunizations, Rh; Isoimmunizations, Rhesus; Rh Isoimmunizations; Rh Sensitizations; Rhesus Isoimmunization; Rhesus Isoimmunizations; Sensitization, Rh; Sensitizations, Rh; Isoimmunization, Rhesus
