Abstract
Transfusion related acute lung injury (TRALI) is a rarely seen and transfusion complication that may develop as a result of transfusion of blood products which contains plasma. TRALI can be mortal if it is not diagnosed and treated promptly. The most important step in management of this complication is to provide the early differential diagnosis of this condition. Hence here in we report a case of TRALI where the patient was firstly misdiagnosed and hospitalized as septic shock and acute heart failure due to clinical findings of chest pain, respiratory failure and hypotension.

Key words: Blood transfusion, acute lung injury, differential diagnosis
