The discovery16, 17 in 1900 of the isoagglutination reaction was one of the most important steps in the history of blood transfusion, since when donors of the same blood group as the patient are used, transfusions are practically free from danger. Even after this discovery was generally adopted and applied, however, occasional hemolytic reactions continued to occur. In the earlier days, practically all of these reactions could be traced to mistakes in blood grouping (Bordley4) of the patient, donor or both, and even at the present time such unnecessary errors are made too frequently.3 Besides the hemolytic reactions caused by
