Management of Alloimmunization During Pregnancy
Once alloimmunization is diagnosed during pregnancy, maternal titers must be followed unless it is known that the father is also Rh negative. Maternal levels should be followed until a critical titer is reached, after which MCA Doppler studies should be performed. In severe cases, intrauterine transfusion may be needed .
