Abstract

This report describes a patient whose own and transfused K:‐1 red cell populations became strongly K:1 during a terminal episode of sepsis due to a group D streptococcus organism, Streptococcus faecium. Subsequent in vitro studies using normal K:‐1 red cells inoculated with that organism showed that it could render the red cells agglutinable by reagents containing IgG anti‐K1. In addition, disrupted S. faecium organisms rendered Jkb‐negative red cells agglutinable by those reagents. 1984 AABB
