Hemosiderosis

Common Name(s)

Hemosiderosis

Hemosiderosis is a rare condition where there is too much iron in the body and the blood. This condition can result in long-lasting damage to organs. The liver, lungs and kidneys are usually the most affected organs. Symptoms vary according to the organs affected. Hemosiderosis can be diagnosed with a variety of tests including blood tests, imaging tests, and potentialy biopsies of affected organs, which is where a small needle is used to take a piece of the organ to look at under a microscope. Treatment focuses on removing iron from the body. This may be done with different medications and sometime phlebotomy, or purposefully bleeding.
