Abstract

A study was conducted to find the frequency of the Rhesus blood group in Saudi female students at Tabuk. The results were compared with the hospital data and other studies from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Samples were collected from apparently healthy Saudi female students studying at College of Science for Women, Mahrjan, Tabuk. Data from King Khalid Hospital was used for comparison. Percentages of Rhand Rh+ were calculated in each group. Rhesus positive college students were 91.7% and Rhesus negative were 8.3%. The percentage of Rh+ and Rh- in male hospital cases was 93.3% and 6.6 %, while in females it was 90.7% and 9.2% respectively. The overall frequency of Rhesus positive in this group was 91.8 % and that of Rh negative was 8.18 %. The information of frequencies of Rh blood group in Saudi Arabia is very important because of its role in blood transfusions and haemolytic disease in various populations.
