Hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn (HDFN) is a rare condition with an estimated 3 to 80 cases per 100,000 persons annually in the United States. Nonetheless, the complexity and increased risk for adverse outcomes in such cases requires more targeted approaches to HDFN that minimize or negate the risks associated with intrauterine transfusion.
This article focuses on the pathophysiology underlying fetal/newborn allo- and autoimmune diseases, especially HDFN and the current/evolving diagnostic and treatment regimens for HDFN.
