Hemochromatosis is a disease of infrequent occurrence. Sheldon, in 1935, accepted a total of 311 reported cases as genuine. Butt and Wilder have added 30 cases which were observed at The Mayo Clinic in 15 years. Stewart emphasized the rarity of the disease by showing that its incidence was 0.136 per cent in the necropsies performed in the British hospitals. Althausen and Kerr determined that the incidence of the disease varied from 0.003 per cent among 106,000 patients who were admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital to 0.005 per cent among 60,000 patients who were admitted to the University of California
