In recent years, hepatic, cardiac, and even pancreatic iron deposition has been studied in detail. However, the presence and incidence of iron disposition of normal-sized adrenal glands has not been adequately reported. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the levels of iron deposition in the adrenal glands in patients with iron overload.
