A Case of Ael with Anti-A


We report a case of Ael in a 44-year old woman. The patient s red cells were typed as 0 and her serum had both anti-A and anti-B, but the agglutination strength with Al cell was weaker (2+) than with B cell (4+) in her serum. Additional tests showed that the red cells were not agglutinated by anti-A,B and A antigen on patient s RBC was demonstrated by adsorption-elution test. Her saliva contained H but no A substance, and the ABO genotyping test identified her blood type as AO. We concluded that this was a case of blood type Ael with anti-A.
