Case 118 – update 2

You ask the paediatrician about the baby’s history and discover:

  • she has never had a blood tranfusion
  • mum does not have an allogenic antibody
  • there is no known family history of haemolysis
  • there are signs of jaundice

Further tests show

Reticulocyte count 436 (reference range for age 50-100)

Direct antibody test is negative

What is the most likely differential diagnosis and what further tests could be done to make the diagnosis?
