Abstract

We studied by cross-sectional echocardiography seven patients affected by idiopathic haemochromatosis without clinical signs of heart failure. In two patients the heart muscle showed a peculiar echocardiographic texture at the level of the endocardium. No differences were noticed in clinical and haematological findings of the patients with and without abnormal texture. Increased echogenicity of the subendocardial myocardium should be looked for in patients with idiopathic haemochromatosis.
