The history of the Diego blood group A história do sistema de grupos sangüíneos Diego

By Pedro C. Junqueira and Lilian Castilho


Diego blood group initially, because it appeared to be rare, was considered as a family or 'private factor'. With further investigation, it was possible to trace this blood group from an individual family in Venezuela to the Indians across the continent of America and eventually to the Mongolian race in Asia. This review article follows the developments over the years and the history of the Diego blood group.<br>O sistema de grupos sangüíneos Diego, devido à sua raridade, era considerado um fator privado familiar.
