Abstract

A patient who received an erroneous transfusion of outdated and partly homogenized blood is reported. Although marked hemoglobinemia was present, only transient hemodynamic, pulmonary, and renal alterations were observed. Massive embolism of microaggregates and norepinephrine release might explain our findings. Dopamine (3 micrograms/kg . min) might have beneficial effects on renal function in this pseudohemolytic transfusion reaction.
