Sir,

Regarding the paper "ABO blood groups and Rhesus factor: An exploring link to periodontal diseases" by Koregol et al., [1] which was published recently in Indian Journal of Dental Research, I would like to comment on two points.

Firstly, it was not Karl Landsteiner, but Alfred von Decastello and Adriano Sturli who had discovered the fourth blood group, AB. [2]

Secondly, the authors have used the term Rh factor throughout the paper, while the correct term according to the ISBT should be Rh (D) factor or antigen.
