Abstract
Two cases of severe hereditary hemochromatotic cardiomyopathy are reported. Both patients responded remarkably well to treatment and are leading a normal life requiring no cardiac medications, following small volume phlebotomies for two years combined, in the first three and six months of treatment, with subcutaneous deferoxamine mesylate.
