Abstract Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is a common genetic disease with iron overload in certain organs, especially the liver. Most cases are homozygous for the C282Y mutation in the HFE gene; a few are C282Y heterozygous, compound C282Y/H63D heterozygous, or have no known mutation. A third mutation, S65C, has been associated with HH, but this finding is disputed. We have studied the clinical significance of various genotypes with the S65C mutation. In a population-based screening for HH in 65,238 persons, 613 had high serum transferrin saturation in two blood samples and were invited for HFE genotyping. In 556 persons with complete data sets, we studied the serum ferritin concentration and the risk of being diagnosed with phenotypic HH in the various genotypic groups. The phenotypic diagnosis was given without knowing the genotypic result. Except for the C282Y homozygotes, no differences in median serum ferritin concentrations were found between the various genotypic groups. However, the C282Y/S65C compound heterozygous group had a higher risk of being diagnosed with phenotypic HH than the wild-type group, as did the C282Y homozygous and the C282Y/H63D compound heterozygous groups. When combined with the C282Y mutation, the S65C mutation is associated with an increased risk of being diagnosed with phenotypic HH.
