Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Haemochromatosis may present in different ways according to the organ predominantly affected by iron overload. Presentation with symptoms caused by deficiency of pituitary gonadotrophins is recognized but rarely reported. We present such a case and argue that haemochromatosis may be a more common cause of impotence than is presently realized.
