Haemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder common among Caucasians that leads to iron overload. Molecular studies have shown that the disease is prevalently due to a mutation in the HFE gene. Although C282Y in the homozygous state remains the most common patient's genotype, other genes and genetic mutations are associated with haemochromatosis… CONTINUE READING
