Blood transfusion is an accepted life saving therapeutic procedure in obstetrics and all specialities of
medicine and few chronic or immune disorders of dermatology like chronic vascular disease and bullous
dermatosis. We report a unique case of adverse dermatological lesion following severe blood transfusion
reaction in an unbooked 28 year G3 P2 L2 with 29+2 weeks pregnancy with severe anemia, first of its kind
in my 31 year of clinical experience as consultant obstetri cian. Blood transfusion, a life saving procedure
should only be given at secondary or tertiary care hospitals. Attending doctor must have a vigil eye to
recognize any adverse dermatological lesions due to blood transfusion reaction with HDU ready to manage
every catastrophic eventuality.
