Hemochromatosis and Hemosiderosis in Children
Hemochromatosis involves the group of diseases of different etiology and morphological features of affected organs. Hemochromatosis is usually inherited; however, it can also develop secondary to various diseases. In this case, the accumulation of iron in parenchymal organs in the form of hemosiderin leading to disruption of their structure and function is typical. An early or preclinical diagnosis of the disease is of great importance for its prognosis as in case of untimely diagnosis significant abnormalities in various organs and systems are observed.
