 [he″mo-sid″ĕ-ro´sis]

hepatic hemosiderosis the deposit of an abnormal quantity of hemosiderin in the liver, when this is not associated with cirrhosis, as hemochromatosis is.
pulmonary hemosiderosis the deposition of abnormal amounts of hemosiderin in the lungs, due to bleeding into the lung interstitium.

he·mo·sid·er·o·sis

(hē'mō-sid'ĕr-ō'sis),

hemosiderosis

[hē′mōsid′ərō′sis, hem′-]
Etymology: Gk, haima + sideros, iron, osis, condition
an increased deposition of iron in a variety of tissues, usually in the form of hemosiderin and usually without tissue damage. It is often associated with diseases involving chronic, extensive destruction of red blood cells, such as thalassemia major. Compare hemochromatosis, sideroblastic anemia. See also ferritin, iron transport, siderosis, thalassemia, transferrin.

hemosiderosis

An iron overload syndrome arbitrarily differentiated from hemochromatosis by the reversible nature of the iron accumulation in the reticuloendothelial system. See Hemochromatosis.

he·mo·sid·er·o·sis

(hē'mō-sid-ĕr-ō'sis)
Accumulation of hemosiderin in tissue, particularly in the liver and spleen.
See: hemochromatosis
Synonym(s): haemosiderosis.
[hemosiderin + -osis, condition]

Hemosiderosis

An overload of iron in the body resulting from repeated blood transfusions. Hemosiderosis occurs most often in patients with thalassemia.
