Medical Definition of Neonatal anaemia
A condition which develops in the foetus due to an incompatibility between the mother's blood type (RH factor) and the baby's. Maternal antibodies, which enter the foetal circulation during delivery attack the baby's red blood cells leading to haemolysis (rupture of the cells).
Symptoms include an infant with an enlarged liver and spleen, swelling, jaundice and anaemia.
