Background and Objective: Of all blood group systems, RH is one of the most important blood groups, which its compatibility is one of the essential principals of transfusion. Two genes (RhD and RhCE) locate on chromosome 1, and encode the Rh proteins. RhD is an immunogenic antigen. We describe a rare Rh phenotype D-- in this report.

Case Report: A forty- nine- year- old man, who received two O+ packed cells once time was studied in this report. He was admitted to hospital for kidney transplantation that reiterative mismatch cross matches were seen. Serologic tests of patient showed a rare Rh phenotype D-- with frequency of one in ten thousand.

Conclusion: Considering the importance of Rh in blood transfusion complications, typing erythrocyte and preparing autologous blood will reduce transfusion complications.

Key words: D--Phenotype, Transfusion, Rh blood group
