Two different blood types

Are any of you familiar with chimerism and/or other conditions that would cause a person to have two separate blood types?

Hi,
How are you? Chimerism is a rare disorder that mixes the chromosomal population in a single organism and may lead to  the presence of two sets of DNA, or organs that do not match the DNA of the rest of the organism. This occurs very early in the embryonic development and is often the result of two non-identical twin embryos merging together instead of growing on their own. It is best that you have this checked by a doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
