Resumo

MARTI C, Vicens et al. Irreversible acute heart failure caused by cardiac hemochromatosis secondary to multiple transfusions. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.4, pp.430-432. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872002000400011.

We report a 64 years old male, admitted for dyspnea and edema of two weeks duration. A sideroblastic anemia, requiring multiple transfusions, was diagnosed four years earlier. The chest X-ray showed an enlarged heart and right pleural effusion. A low left ejection fraction was evidenced by echocardiogram. Doppler analysis of the mitral flow revealed a restrictive hemodynamic pattern. A diagnosis of secondary cardiac hemochromatosis deposit was made. Nine days after admission the patient died due to heart failure. The clinical presentation of cardiac hemochromatosis as a sudden and irreversible heart failure, as well as the importance of early diagnosis and surveillance of high-risk patients is emphasized (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 430-432)
