Abstract: Appropriate therapeutic and supportive transfusion management of ABO, as well as non-ABO, blood group incompatible Hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation (HPCT) recipients, can become a critical and challenging task during the post-transplantation time period.  20% to 50% of HPCT are ABO incompatible.  Hemolysis is a cardinal symptom of blood group incompatibility.  Immediate hemolysis is predominantly due to a high titer of anti-ABO isohemagglutinins.  Delayed hemolysis in major incompatible transplants presents as delayed erythroid engraftment or pure red cell aplasia.  Delayed hemolysis in minor incompatible transplants usually presents as transient hemolysis due to an expansion of passenger lymphocytes.  Transfusion of blood components compatible with both the donor and recipient should be considered.  Blood product selection will be discussed supported by case presentations.

Objectives:

  1. Review major and minor ABO Incompatible hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation (HPCT).
  2. Discuss passenger lymphocyte syndrome.
  3. Review transfusion support for ABO-incompatible HPCT transplant recipient.
