RHD variants are divided into three categories; weak D, partial D, and Del. The variants detection is important during donor testing and pregnancy. Studies shown that the detection of D variants may be missed by standard serologic methods including Indirect Antihuman Globulin Test and may cause anti-D immunization when exposed to D-negative individual. The limitations of serology can be overcome by RHD gene molecular typing. We describe for the first time a possible novel DBS-0 like allele partial D which revealed serological D and E negative in an Omani donor that is different from the previously described DBS-0 with serological positive D and partial E.
