Pathology and Microbiology
Anti Cw antibody is a low frequency immunoglobulin (IgG) against red cell antigen- Cw. It is clinically significant and may cause haemolytic disease of the newborn. Due to its low frequency, it is not included in routine antenatal antibody screening panel. The incidence of Anti Cw antibodies has not been reported in our population. Here, we describe the clinical and laboratory spectra of three pregnant women having low titres anti Cw antibodies. Fortunately, haemolytic disease of the newborn was not encountered in any case.
