Hepatic iron stores and markers of iron overload in alcoholics and patients with idiopathic hemochromatosis.

Abstract:

Liver iron concentrations were determined in 60 alcoholics with liver disease of varying severity, 15 patients with untreated idiopathic hemochromatosis, and 16 control subjects with biliary tract disease.
