HEMOSIDEROSIS ADALAH PDF

Mitral stenosis can also lead to pulmonary hemosiderosis. Hemosiderin collects throughout the body in hemochromatosis. Hemosiderin deposition in the liver is a common feature of hemochromatosis and is the cause of liver failure in the disease. Selective iron deposition in the beta cells of pancreatic islets leads to diabetes [4] [2] due to distribution of transferrin receptor on the beta cells of islets [3] and in the skin leads to hyperpigmentation.

Mitral stenosis can also lead to pulmonary hemosiderosis. Hemosiderin collects throughout the body in hemochromatosis. Hemosiderin deposition in the liver is a common feature of hemochromatosis and is the cause of liver failure in the disease. Selective iron deposition in the beta cells of pancreatic islets leads to diabetes [4] [2] due to distribution of transferrin receptor on the beta cells of islets [3] and in the skin leads to hyperpigmentation.

Hemosiderin deposition in the brain is seen after bleeds from any source, including chronic subdural hemorrhage , cerebral arteriovenous malformations , cavernous hemangiomata. Hemosiderin collects in the skin and is slowly removed after bruising; hemosiderin may remain in some conditions such as stasis dermatitis. Hemosiderin in the kidneys has been associated with marked hemolysis and a rare blood disorder called paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.

Hemosiderin may deposit in diseases associated with iron overload. These diseases are typically diseases in which chronic blood loss requires frequent blood transfusions , such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia , though beta thalassemia minor has been associated with hemosiderin deposits in the liver in those with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease independent of any transfusions.

Both these phenomena occur in thalassaemias , with blood transfusion therapy being the major cause of iron overload in thalassaemia major and increased GI absorption being more important in patients with intermedia thalassaemia who are not frequently transfused. Each unit of blood contains about mg iron. After 50 units have been transfused, or earlier in children, siderosis develops, with increased pigmentation of skin exposed to light and susceptibility to infection, reduced growth and delayed sexual development and puberty The human body lacks a mechanism to excrete excess iron.

Iron accumulation is toxic to many tissues, causing heart failure , cirrhosis , liver cancer , growth retardation and endocrine abnormalities. In the absence of regular iron chelation therapy, the iron loading rates vary.

For monitoring of transfusion iron overload, other organ function and iron-mediated damage, surveillance of the patient for diabetes , hypothyroidism , hypoparathyroidism and hypoponadotropic hypogonadism is recommended.
