Blood ABO mismatching vs IgA deficiency timing of reaction!

I wanted to make sure and clarify a concept:

When giving a blood transfusion, people with IgA deficiency react faster (within seconds to minutes of the transfusion). And people with ABO mismatch respond a little later (within the hour). Because, I think, both can present with fever, flank pain and chills.

I wanted to make sure of the time that each takes to occur i.e:

- if the patient has symptoms within 20-25 minutes of the blood transfusion, would it be IgA deficiency

-and 30 minutes to one hour later, symptoms would be seen in someone with ABO mismatch

Thank you!
