    Injecting Wrong Blood Type

    My question is, will injecting only 5ml of an incompatible blood type cause any issues for my son, short term and long term(besides the risk of HIV/Hepatitis infection of course and other transfusion related diseases/illnesses)?

    I basically need to know, would injecting a small amount of a different blood type( 5ml of that blood), cause the same type of reactions or illnesses that one would experience if they had transfused a much larger amount of a different blood type. Please refer to the link to the article below to see the reactions I am referring to. Would my son experience any sort of reactions from such a small amount of a different type of blood type?
