A hematologic disease characterized by abnormal hemoglobin content in the erythrocytes which are reduced in size. The disorder is due to an error of iron metabolism that results in high serum iron, massive hepatic iron deposition, and absence of sideroblasts and stainable bone marrow iron store. Despite adequate transferrin-iron complex, delivery of iron to the erythroid bone marrow is apparently insufficient for the demands of hemoglobin synthesis.
