In brief: Reversible

Since it is due to igg antibodies that come across the placenta, these eventually disappear after about six months.
This some of the symptoms such as rash and low platelets can resolve. Heart block is more of a permanent problem and will need long-term treatment and sometimes a permanent pacemaker for the child.
