Antibodies against Rh (CEce) and Kidd (Jka and Jkb) system antigens are mostly implicated in delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions (DHTR), which is a potentially life-threatening complication observed in patients receiving chronic transfusions. Here, we are describing a case of Chido/Roger antibody which presented to our laboratory as DHTR. The clinical presentation and laboratory findings including the immunohematological workups with regard to the reaction are discussed, with a special emphasis on the benefit of identifying such an antibody and obtaining blood unit for transfusion supports the patient with respect to providing a compatible unit.
