IL1RN genotype as a risk factor for joint pain in hereditary haemochromatosis?
Hereditary haemochromatosis is a genetically determined disease of disrupted iron metabolism caused predominantly by the C282Y mutation in the HFE gene on chromosome 6. If detected early, the symptoms of haemochromatosis can usually be prevented by venesection to remove excess iron and maintain normal iron stores.
