Abstract

Hereditary haemochromatosis is a heterogeneous genetic disorder inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. We describe a case of a 52-year-old male who presented with clinical features of hepatic encephalopathy and was found to have cirrhosis of liver, hyperpigmentation, diabetes mellitus and hypogonadism. Laboratory investigation revealed evidence of haemochromatosis based on iron studies and liver biopsy with absent HFE mutation.
