Haemolytic Disease of Foetus and Newborn (HDFN) or Haemolytic Disease of Newborn (HDN) has been known to occur mostly as a result of Rh-isoimmunisation. However, HDFN due to minor antigens of the Rh system have also been reported. Anti-c causes severe HDN after anti D. Here, we report a case of HDN due to anti-c and we want to emphasise the importance of routine antibody screening as part of the antenatal services for all pregnant woman so as to prevent hazardous complications for the baby.
