Not enough info: Why are the transfusions needed in the first place? That may help in providing an answer to your question.

See below: It may be some type of hematological disorder based on what you are describing, but it is difficult to say which without knowing more details. I would recommend discussing with doctor who is ordering the transfusions to discuss what the working diagnosis is.
