Dealing with Rare RBC Types

This is a presentation from my time at NGHA Riyadh on a strategy for rare RBC types in the Gulf/Middle East region. This is my practical method for dealing with these antibodies.

As regards prophylactic antigen matching, my remarks are based on the antibodies observed in my region. I know that some would match at least Duffy antigens, but emergence of anti-Fya and anti-Fyb have not been common in my practice.
