Of all blood group systems, Rh is one of the most important blood groups, which its compatibility is one of the essential principles of transfusion. Two genes (RhD and RhCE) locate on chromosome 1, which encode the Rh proteins. RhD is an immunogenic antigen. A 49-year-old man was studied in this report, who received two O + packed cells 1-time without molecular compatibility. He was hospitalized for kidney transplantation in hospital and reiterative mismatch crossmatches were seen. Serologic tests of patients show a rare Rh phenotype (D-), with a frequency of 1 in 10,000. Screening between family members was done to find a compatible donor.
