Siddappa and colleagues presented a rare case of renal hemosiderosis appearing with renal failure due to repeated blood transfusion (about 2 per month) over past 2 years for chronic refractory anemia.[sup.25] Three cases of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria with renal hemosiderosis and renal failure were reported by Nair and colleagues.[sup.10] Most patients with renal hemosiderosis also have renal failure.
