juvenile hemochromatosis
either of two autosomal recessive iron overload disorders that clinically resemble hereditary hemochromatosis type 1 but have their onset in childhood and lead to death by age 30. The most common of these is caused by mutation in the HJV gene (locus: 1q21), which encodes hemojuvelin; the other is caused by mutation in the HAMP gene (locus: 19q13), which encodes hepcidin. Called also hereditary h. type 2.
