Abstract  
Fetal anaemia in pregnancy, although less prevalent since the introduction of anti-D immunoglobulin, remains a clinical issue. In this article the authors describe two clinical cases of challenging fetal anaemia; the first following a parvovirus B19 infection during pregnancy and the second after Rh isoimmunization (due to Rh positive maternal transfusions in childhood), sooner and more severe in a second pregnancy. A brief review of the topic was also conducted.
Key words:  Fetal anaemia      Parvovirus      Transfusion      Systolic peak middle cerebral artery      Fetal transfusion
