ABSTRACT
Knowledge of the frequencies and the phenotype of Rhesus system is very important for Blood Bank and transfusion service policies. This study was conducted on 2875 blood samples from Blood Bank in Teaching Hospital in Basrah to study different Rh phenotype in blood donors. The result showed that the frequency of Rh positive was found to be (93.1%) and Rh negative was (6.99%). The Rh phenotypes in 87 Rh negative blood samples present in decreasing order of frequency were as follows: rr, r1r, r11r, r1r11, r1r1, r11r11, ry . The results of this study were compared with the results of other studies.
