A Rare Case of Hemolytic Disease of the Fetus and Newborn Caused by Anti-s Antibody in a Chinese Patient by Yang Liyan, Jiang Yongmei, Feng Jing

Background: Anti-s is a rare alloantibody, and the reported cases of hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) caused by anti-s are limited to non-Asian populations.
Methods: Here, we report the case of a Chinese woman with a history of multiple pregnancies who developed an alloantibody with anti-s specificity.
Results: Her newborn developed HDFN caused by anti-s but the clinical symptoms were not serious. After supportive treatment and bilirubin light phototherapy, the baby was discharged with a good prognosis.
Conclusions: This is the first reported case of anti-s-induced HDFN in a Chinese patient, highlighting the need for further research in the Asian population.
