156 Possible Causes for Cardiomyopathy, Mutation in the Hereditary Hemochromatosis Gene

  • Hemochromatosis

    The most common complications of transfusional hemochromatosis are hepatic cirrhosis, hypopituitarism, hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, other endocrinopathies, and cardiomyopathy[] Hereditary hemochromatosis can be divided into HFE- and non-HFE-related based on genetic mutations in different genes.[] Lenihan, Infiltrative Cardiomyopathy and Pericardial Disease, Seminars in Oncology, 40, 2, (199), (2013). Hussam Ghoti, Eliezer A.[]

  • Heart Failure

    Predisposing factors for CQ/HCQ-induced cardiomyopathy have been proposed.[] The actuarial survival rates of persons who are homozygous for the mutation of the hemochromatosis gene C282Y have been reported to be 95%, 93%, and 66%, at 5, 10, and 20[] Few cases report patients with heart failure, secondary to dilated cardiomyopathy, with high fever.[]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    An 88-year-old man who had previously been diagnosed with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy exhibited left ventricular asynergy on echocardiography before undergoing cholecystectomy[] The actuarial survival rates of persons who are homozygous for the mutation of the hemochromatosis gene C282Y have been reported to be 95%, 93%, and 66%, at 5, 10, and 20[] Immediate diagnosis and treatment are required for better control of acromegalic cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Non-compaction cardiomyopathy was initially described in paediatric patients.[] Here we report a 33-years-old woman with hereditary spherocytosis and hemochromatosis due to homozygosity for the C282Y mutation of the HFE gene.[] A case of a 15-year-old female patient with acute heart failure due to non-compaction cardiomyopathy and hereditary anaemia (hereditary spherocytic elliptocytosis) requiring[]

  • Restrictive Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiomyopathy, constrictive Restrictive cardiomyopathy (disorder) primary restrictive cardiomyopathy (disorder) Restrictive cardiomyopathy, RCM Restrictive cardiomyopathy[] Cardiac Hemochromatosis Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is caused by increased absorption of dietary iron, which accumulates in various organs, leading to their dysfunction[] […] progression of cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Hereditary Hemochromatosis

    Excess iron is deposited in a variety of organs leading to their failure, and resulting in serious illnesses including cirrhosis, hepatomas, diabetes, cardiomyopathy, arthritis[] Classic hereditary hemochromatosis is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the HFE gene, resulting in increased intestinal iron absorption and iron accumulation[] The gene that causes hereditary hemochromatosis, called HFE, was identified on chromosome 6 in 1996.[]

  • Hemosiderosis

    Echocardiography revealed dilated cardiomyopathy with left ventricular dysfunction.[] A novel MHC class-1-like gene is mutated in patients with hereditary hemochromatosis. Nat Genet 1996; 14 :399–408. 2. Edwards CQ, Ajioka RS, Kushner JP.[] The most common cause of morbidity is cardiomyopathy (30%) that is induced by iron overload.[]

  • Hemochromatosis-related Cardiomyopathy

    Cardiac magnetic resonance (MR) of this patient revealed deposition of iron in the myocardium and established the diagnosis of hemachromatosis-related cardiomyopathy.[] Classic hereditary hemochromatosis is caused by mutations of the HFE gene.[] General information about cardiomyopathy. What causes cardiomyopathy? There are many different causes of cardiomyopathy.[]

  • Wilson Disease

    Cardiac injury may include arrhythmia, cardiomyopathy, and autonomic dysfunction.[] Mutations in genes encoding ATPase, Cu transporting, beta polypeptide (ATP7B) and hemochromatosis (HFE) or several non-HFE genes are considered to be causative for WD and[] These are presumably related to underlying cardiomyopathy due to deposition of copper in heart which can be quantified by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and echocardiography[]

  • Primary Hyperoxaluria

    In summary, these findings established the diagnosis of a restrictive cardiomyopathy due to PH II.[] mutations.[] We report a 19-year-old male with non- compaction cardiomyopathy combined with patent ductus arteriosus awaiting combined liver-kidney transplantation for primary hyperoxaluria[]
