Abstract

The complications of blood transfusion are well known and at times is life threatening especially when it occurs due to accidental major mismatched blood transfusion. Here we present a case of a 32 years old lady who delivered a baby by LUCS. On her 3rd POD, she came to a tertiary level hospital with profuse per vaginal bleeding, breathlessness. She received an erroneous transfusion of group “B” Rh positive blood when her actual blood group was “O” Rh positive at a different hospital. She presented with features of DIC and acute renal failure. She was admitted to critical care unit- treated with broad spectrum antibiotics, forced diuresis with inj. Frusemide and eventually 3 sessions of hemodialysis were needed. As for transfusion, we decided to transfuse her with “O” Rh positive washed packed cell and “AB” Rh positive plasma which finally saved her life.
