From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An acute hemolytic transfusion reaction (AHTR) is a type of transfusion reaction that is associated with hemolysis.

It occurs very soon after the transfusion.[1]

It is also known as an "immediate hemolytic transfusion reaction".[2]

About 20 annual deaths are due to AHTR. [3]
