Herein, we report a case of naturally occurring anti-Leb alloantibody identified in the plasma of a first time voluntary blood donor. The immunohematology workup was done on the pilot sample tubes collected during blood donation by the conventional tube technique and using ID-Micro Column System Glass Beads card (anti-IgG, C3d; Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics, Raritan, New Jersey, USA). Blood group of the donor was confirmed to be B RhD positive, and the alloantibody in his plasma was identified as anti-Leb, having clinically significant characteristics. Since in this particular case, anti-Leb was IgM and IgG in nature, it was clinically significant and can lead to hemolytic transfusion reaction, especially if such fresh frozen plasma unit is transfused to Leb negative patients.
