Abstract
Hemochromatosis is an iron storage disease characterized by iron deposition in parenchymal cells due to increased intestinal iron absorption. Iron overload leads to tissue damage and dysfunction particularly in the liver, pancreas, heart, joints, and pituitary gland. Panhypopituitarism is a clinical condition in which the anterior pituitary hormones are deficient. Herein, we report a rare case of hemochromatosis.
