Abstract

Hereditary hemochromatosis is a common disorder of iron metabolism most frequently associated with mutations in the HFE gene. Hereditary hemochromatosis may be caused by other genetic mutations including those in the SLC40A1 gene. This report describes the clinical and laboratory findings of two Spanish families with autosomal dominant iron overload associated with previously unrecognized Ferroportin 1 mutations (p.R88T and p.I180T). The phenotype of iron overload in the patients carrying these mutations could correspond to the group of clinical mutations that lose their iron export function.
