Anti-Lan

Blood Group: Langereis

Common:  Lan- phenotype is rare.

Causes HDN: Yes
Critical Titer: 1:16
Information:
Until 2013, only 3 cases have been reported of anti-Lan causing HDN and all have deemed mild [1, 3], however there has also been one severe case of HDN from anti-Lan requiring IUTs [4]. For this reason monitoring titers followed by MCA scans is important.
