Diverse hereditary disorders associated with iron accumulation cause widespread organ damage. New insights into cellular pathways of iron transport have emerged from the identification of molecules implicated in heritable defects of iron metabolism. Unravelling the genetic basis of rare variants of haemochromatosis should provide vital functional information to further our mechanistic understanding of iron homeostasis.
