Comparison of hemosiderin stain of normal liver (upper left) with hemosiderin stain of livers from individuals affected with hemochromatosis (upper right, lower right, and lower left).  Note the varying degree of increased deposition of hemosiderin livers of HH homozygotes.  This damages the liver, impairs its function, and can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
