Haemosiderosis (hemosiderosis) is iron overload resulting in the accumulation of haemosiderin characteristically in the liver, but also in other tissues. Haemosiderin will also be deposited after haemorrhage into a tissue, but this is not haemosiderosis. Diagnosis might be suggested by raised serum ferritin levels but requires really either liver biopsy(historical) or MRI characterisation.
