Abstract

Newborns with ABO blood group incompatibility can have a spectrum of clinical presentations from remaining asymptomatic to severe hemolytic anemia with jaundice. This case presentation discusses dizygotic twins who demonstrated both ends of the clinical spectrum. Similar cases in which there is such extreme variation between twins were not attainable in the current literature, which prompted the authors to present it as a rare occurrence and one that was unexpected based on their past experience with ABO incompatibility both in singletons and in twins.
