To improve routine D typing and define transfusion strategy, it is important to establish the frequency of partial D alleles and their susceptibility to anti-D alloimmunization due to transfusion or pregnancy. We identified the partial D DNB that was caused by an RHD(G355S) allele associated with a CDe haplotype and whose phenotype presented a normal D in routine typing. The antigen density was about 6000 D antigens per red blood cell, and the Rhesus index was 0.02. Five anti-D immunization events with allo-anti-D titers up to 128 were observed. Twelve carriers of DNB were whites of Central Europe; the only Danish proband had Austrian ancestry. DNB was the most frequent partial D recognized so far in whites, occurring with frequencies of up to 1:292 in Switzerland. DNB was the underlying partial D phenotype in a relevant fraction of anti-D immunizations occurring in whites.
