  • Rare blood groups

    Does anyone know anything about rare blood groups and how does one inherit it?Can a man or woman pass it on to all or some of their children?

    Since different people define "rare blood type" in different way why don't you tell us what blood type you are talking about?

      There's a 50% chance of a specific parental allele controlling blood type being passed on to each child. Each parent has two copies, and so depending on parents' types, there are different odds of different blood groups.

        A Z156 Irishman became a blood donor and was told that he had a rare blood type.
