We screened 3,249 blood donors and 12,916 patients with cataract to get insights into the frequency of hereditary hyperferritinemia cataract syndrome (HHCS) in subjects with unexplained hyperferritinemia and/or cataract. No mutation in the iron responsive element of the L-ferritin gene was found in subjects who met the established inclusion criteria. HHCS appears to be a relatively rare condition, even in selected patients.
