Quantitative estimations of the iron content of skin taken from patients who have hemochromatosis have been and are exceedingly rare. Sheldon1 in his review of world literature in 1935 was able to find only two such analyses, and the results of these were at great variance with each other. Muir and Shaw Dunn2 found an iron content of 0.188 per cent of the dry weight of the skin, while Loeper, Ravier, and Lesure3 reported 1.15 per cent of the dry weight as iron. In view of these discrepancies the following report is considered to be of sufficient interest and importance
