Abstract

The effect of the administration of promethazine in the treatment of erythroblastosis fetalis was studied in four maternal-fetal pairs. The three infants exposed for a prolonged period of time had decreased neonatal number and function of T cells, and abnormal specific humoral immune responses. The possible role of promethazine in the induction of fetal immunoincompetence is discussed.
