Hemolysis due to donor-derived antibodies produced by 'passenger' B lymphocytes, called passenger lymphocyte syndrome, has been described in ABO- unmatched solid organ and bone marrow transplant recipients. Delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions occur within a similar time frame and have similar clinical and serologic findings. To our knowledge, we report the first case of hemolysis due to the simultaneous occurrence of passenger lymphocyte syndrome (donor-derived anti-A) and a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (recipient-produced anti-E) in a liver transplant patient.
