Foetomaternal haemorrhage is one of the important factors influencing maternal iso-immunization. In the present report at­tempt is made to study various aspects of foetomaternal haemor­rhage. While the overall incidence of foetal cell leak was observed in 21.43%, the incidence in the complicated deliveries ranged from. 27.94 to 85.72%. Incidence was not influenced by parity, however ABO compatible deliveries showed slight increase in the incidence (22.56%) as compared to ABO incompatible (18.75%) deliveries. ABO incompatible foetal cells were eliminated within 24 hours after delivery. Incidence of foetal cell leak was 8.28% in medical termination of pregnancy. Anth-Rh was produced in two out of nine women having foetal cell leak.
