Inherited iron overload



Inherited iron overload



Acta Paediatrica Scandinavica. Supplement 361: 86-95



Iron overload may be produced by 3 mechanisms; inappropriately increased mucosal absorption of Fe, parenteral administration or injection of therapeutic Fe and grossly excessive oral intake over long periods. However, several inherited forms of Fe overload have been described, and it is accepted that haemochromatosis (HG) is an inherited disorder. The combination of serum Fe transferrin saturation and serum ferritin measurement will detect Fe overload in an early, precirrhotic stage.
