Delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction is a type of transfusion reaction. [1 ] [2 ] [3 ]
This can occur one to four weeks after the transfusion.
One way this can occur is if a person without a Kidd blood antigen receives a [4 ] Kidd antigen in a transfusion . A hemolytic reaction can occur between 3 to 14 days as a result of a secondary immune response, with a drop in hemoglobin level, fever, jaundice, or hemoglobinuria. [5 ]
