Transfusion management of an IgA deficient patient with anti-IgA and incidental correction of IgA deficiency after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.

A patient with multiple myeloma was noted to have an IgA deficiency during investigation of a possible transfusion reaction due to IgA deficiency and anti-IgA. Because of the patient's age, otherwise good health, and early stage of disease, he was enrolled in a research treatment protocol that involved an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT). The BMT successfully put the patient in complete remission from his multiple myeloma and corrected his IgA deficiency. Class-specific IgG anti-IgA antibody that had been identified prior to BMT was no longer detectable in his plasma. Anaphylactic transfusion reactions were successfully avoided by using a combination of IgA-deficient and washed blood components including the marrow graft, and IgA-reduced intravenous immunoglobulin.
