Iron is an essential metal but overload occurs when intake of iron exceeds requirements and occurs due to the absence in humans of a physiological mechanism to excrete excess iron. Sustained 4 Fe intake (dietary or parenteral) may result in iron accumulation, overload and potentially fatal 128 tissue damage.

Timing and pattern of tissue damage is determined by rate of accumulation, the quantity of total body iron and distribution of iron between reticuloendothelial (RE) storage sites and vulnerable parenchymal tissue. Iron accumulation in parenchymal cells of the liver, heart, pancreas and other organs is the major determinant of clinical sequelae.
