Transfusion-Related Acute Lung Injury
- 1 Michigan State University, United States
We present here a 50-year-old male with a past medical history of aplastic anemia secondary to myelodysplastic syndrome who presented to the hospital with the chief complaint of severe generalized weakness due to acute anemia. He was transfused one unit of blood and developed ARDS 4 hours later. He was diagnosed with transfusion-related acute lung injury and discharged home after symptomatic management. This case report is a typical case of TRALI and deserves to be published in order to inform the general public of clinicians about TRALI, with the goal to improve the notification rate to hemovigilance which remains very low.
