Hemolytic disease of the newborn develops when maternal IgG antibodies specific for fetal blood- group antigens cross the placenta and destroy fetal red blood cells. The consequences of such transfer can be minor, serious, or lethal. Severe hemolytic disease of the newborn, called erythroblastosis fetalis, most commonly develops when an Rh+ fetus expresses an Rh antigen on its blood cells that the Rh– mother does not express.
