About 1% of patients who receive blood transfusions will develop transfusion reactions. Febrile non-hemolytic transfusion reaction (FNHTR) is the most common type of transfusion reaction. It not only leads to misdiagnosis and delayed treatment, but also incurs a huge economic burden. This article reviews FNHTR systematically, aiming to make clinicians have a more comprehensive understanding of FNHTR and reduce the occurrence of this side effect.
