Abstract

Hemochromatosis is rarely seen in India. We report a case of idiopathic hemochromatosis with increased urinary porphyrins. The computed tomography of the kidneys revealed high attenuating specks at the tip of papillae, the significance of which is discussed. This is also the first case report of the disease occurring in a female patient from India.
