Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is a common autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism. The aim of this study was to screen a population of 339 subjects with abnormal iron status for the most common HH gene mutations to assess the incidence of each type of molecular alteration. A high frequency of HH gene mutations (55.5%) was found in our population.

Iron overload in acute myeloid leukemia patients is not related to HFE and TFR2 gene mutations.

Abstract

Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is a common autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism. The aim of this study was to screen a population of 339 subjects with abnormal iron status for the most common HH gene mutations to assess the incidence of each type of molecular alteration. A high frequency of HH gene mutations (55.5%) was found in our population.
