She visited the hospital in the second trimester of pregnancy for routine antenatal check up. There was a past history of spontaneous abortion at 12 weeks where no immunoglobulin (rhogam) injection was taken. At 22+ weeks of gestation, she was admitted in the hospital with titre 1:128 and 1:512. Counseling was done for outcome of foetus and advised for termination, but parents wanted to continue the pregnancy. Dexamethasone injection was given for foetal lung maturity and then discharged.
