Hemochromatosis represents primary or secondary deposition of an excessive amount of iron in many tissues and organs in the body. Recent studies have evaluated regional myocardial function by tissue Doppler echocardiography. Myocardial strain imaging facilitates the evaluation of regional myocardial function without being influenced by cardiac rotation and translation. Several studies have reported the usefulness of myocardial strain and myocardial strain gradient imaging in patients with various myocardial diseases. In this paper, we performed myocardial strain imaging in a patient with secondary hemochromatosis.
