PathWays Case Study: Aug. 1
A 25-year-old female with no history of medical problems presents to her family medicine physician for routine obstetric care. She is 28 weeks pregnant, and this is her second pregnancy. She received care during her previous pregnancy in a different country, so limited records are available. However, she denies any problems with her prior pregnancy. On the day of the appointment, she reports feeling well, and the physical exam is unremarkable. A type and screen sample was sent for testing. She is O negative, and the antibody screen is positive. Results of the antibody identification panel are provided:
