Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Febrile non-hemolytic transfusion reaction is a type of transfusion reaction that is associated with fever but not directly with hemolysis.

It is abbreviated "FNHTR".[1]

The reaction can be mediated by cytokines.[2][3]

Acetaminophen and diphenhydramine have been used in treatment, and leukoreduction of future transfusions is sometimes performed. [4]
