Have you watched the webcast of Evangelia Petrisli on ISBT Education yet? In this webcast Evangelia discusses a case where the patient received two apheresis platelet transfusions from a donor with peanut allergy, and a subsequent transfusion from a donor who ingested peanuts. The patient immediately developed allergic reactions during the transfusion. 4 days following the transfusion, she developed perioral and periorbital oedema after consuming peanut butter.
