A Case of Secondary Hemochromatosis
A 28-year-old woman with a history of transfusion-dependent thalassemia major who did not receive any iron-chelating agent presented with symptoms of iron overload with marked diffuse increased liver density. Eventually, the diagnosis of secondary hemochromatosis was done based on the aforementioned history, laboratory, and imaging findings.
