Abstract: 

Introduction: Prior to immunoprophylaxis with RhIG, 7-8 percent of Rh-negative women with. Rh-positive, ABO-compatible infants develop anti-Rh (D) within six months of delivery, while only one percent of Rh-negative mothers delivering ABO-incompatible babies are immunized. A significant number of women in Iran become sensitized because immunoprophylaxis is not widely practiced, resulting in hemolytic diseases of the newborn.
Methods: In this paper, the small-volume (500-600 cc) plasma exchange method was investigated in treatment of 32 women with Rhesus disease. Over a period of 4-16 years, these sensitized women had 157 unsuccessful pregnancies.
Small-volume plasma exchange was carried out weekly from the end of their first trimester throughout their pregnancy to reduce anti-D titer.
Results: 31 out of 32 mothers delivered babies successfully.
Conclusions: Small-volume plasma exchange is an easy and safe method, both for the mother and the fetus and can producebri11iant results in treatment of Rh disease. This method is inexpensive and practical, even in small blood transfusion centers.
