This review is largely concerned with the frequency of genetic haemochromatosis (GH) and attempts to find the gene responsible. Studies of disease prevalence are reviewed along with the association of GH with other inherited disorders. The high prevalence of the disorder found in a number of surveys of populations of European origin along with the relatively few patients presenting with the clinical features of the advanced disease remains a paradox. The tight linkage between HLA-A and GH has… CONTINUE READING
