ABSTRACT Henry VIII's first two wives experienced multiple pregnancies culminating in late-term miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal mortality. After his fortieth birthday, the king's mental and physical health underwent rapid deterioration. In this article, we argue that both his reproductive troubles and his midlife pathologies can be explained if Henry VIII were positive for the Kell blood group. A Kell negative woman who has multiple pregnancies with a Kell positive male will suffer…

TLDR
Henry VIII in the first half of his reign is of a magnificent and accomplished ‘imperial prince’, the possessor of superb physical health, but in 1528, when aged 37, he showed a marked change in personality due, it is here argued, to depressive illness, from which he recovered by the mid-1530s.
The significance of anti-S sensitization in pregnancy.
In a 10-year period, 407 of 350,000 pregnancies showed maternal anti-Kell allo-immunization, i.e., an incidence of 1.16 per 1000 pregnancies. About 88% of Kell immunized women gave a history of

Massive fetomaternal transplacental hemorrhage as a perinatology problem, role of ABO fetomaternal compatibility--case studies.
TLDR
For diagnosis, it is possible to use cardiotocography, ultrasound, sinusoid pattern, ultrasound and special hematological tests for quantitative determination of fetal erythrocytes in the maternal blood and for the treatment of such cases one should consider premature termination of pregnancy or intraumbilical transfusion.
Phenotypic variability of a distinct deletion in McLeod syndrome
TLDR
Two Chilean brothers with predominant psychiatric features at disease onset including schizophrenia‐like psychosis and obsessive compulsive disorder are reported, which supports the inclusion of McLeod syndrome in the differential diagnosis of Huntington's disease as well as acute psychosis in male subjects.
Treatment of hemolytic disease of the newborn caused by anti-Kell antibody with recombinant erythropoietin.
TLDR
Recombinant erythropoietin should be considered in the management of infants with severe or hypoproliferative anti-Kell-associated anemia, as this patient demonstrates that the antibody-mediated erythroid suppression in Kell alloimmune anemia can be overcome by rEPO.
