RBC alloimmunization is an important complication of FFP transfusion: A case report of immune anti-D induced by apheresis fresh frozen plasma

RBC alloimmunization is an important complication of FFP transfusion: A case report of immune anti-D induced by apheresis fresh frozen plasma

Transfusion Clinique et Biologique 16(4): 400-403

UK, Germany as well as the Council of Europe recommendation guide have set limits of RBC in clinical fresh frozen plasma (FFP), but current transfusion guidelines do not get the consensus opinion at recommending the D status of FFP to be considered before transfusion. We report a female group A, D- patient with cerebrovascular disease who was induced to develop IgG immune anti-D which can be detected on the 15th day of hospitalization after the relatively regular time interval of transfusion of 1800ml apheresis FFP. Therefore, in making clinical decisions to transfuse FFP or apheresis FFP, the best choice is considered as the same or compatibility with RhD group, in case Rh immunization can be induced and trigger some potential serious problems in future emergent transfusion or pregnancy, especially in high incidence of D antigen countries.
